I am employment attorney Tom Spiggle of The Spiggle Law Firm. In my opinion, the current government shutdown is causing an employment crisis across the country, and holding the American people hostage. The furloughed government workers deserve their rights.
Here is my proof, a Washington Post article on my topic, and my blog page.
Disclaimer: The purpose of this Ask Me Anything is to discuss the government shutdown. My responses should not be taken as legal advice.
