Nope, especially since the government has not actually shut down. The government still runs, every day, and it does not ever stop. The only government employees affected by the shutdown are the NONESSENTIAL employees; i.e, the ones that are not necessary for the running of the government. They are the only ones who are not working right now. Not that that's a good thing for them, but it is for the rest of us. RIF kicked in three days ago. That means any nonessential government employees who have been furloughed longer than 30 days can be officially laid off, permanently, without paperwork, without review, without anything. A reorganization of departments and subdepartments can be reorganized and shut down altogether, saving the American taxpayer tens of millions of dollars, and those taxpayer funds can be allocated elsewhere. Like the wall.
Nonessential means just that: Not essential. If we've got nearly a million federal employees whose jobs are not actually necessary, what are they doing there in the first place? Even those working in the highest levels of the government say the shutdown forces the government to run much more effectively and efficiently.
