Federal workers and their supporters will rally for their jobs Thursday outside the White House as the partial government shutdown rolls through its third week with no end in sight.

Almost half of the 800,000 civilian federal  employees are not working, and even those that are won’t be paid until the stalemate is settled. For most, the furlough becomes real Friday when they miss their first payday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The president has a cavalier attitude because he has no idea what it’s like to rely on a regular paycheck,” said Steve Lenkart, spokesman for the National Federation of Federal Workers.

The federation, which represents more than 100,000 federal workers, is co-sponsoring the rally. Lenkart said the rally Thursday will include congressional leaders and workers who will explain how the shutdown affects them, their families, their agencies and Americans across the country.
