January 10, 2019 / Marivic Cabural Summers
A federal employees union sued the Trump administration over the partial government shutdown, which is now on its 20th day. The partial government shutdown started on December 22 after the Congress failed to pass legislation to fund nine federal departments and dozens of agencies. The shutdown affected around 800,000 federal employees. More than 420,000 of them were compelled to work without pay and over 380,000 were furloughed.
