As the United States partial government shutdown enters its 26th day, the US representatives started sharing several stories of affected federal workers from the government agencies on their social media handles, who are going on without any payment due to the government shutdown.

In a tweet on Tuesday, the US representatives from Florida’s 10th Congressional District, Val Demings, wrote: “Ralph is an 11-year @USArmy vet who has spent 5 years keeping us safe at @MCO. Now, because of the #TrumpShutdown, he’s working without pay. They have a son in the 4th grade, one in college, and one with special needs. His family is struggling to make ends meet.”

US representatives Ann McLane Kuster tweeted: “A woman from NH wrote to me & said the #TrumpShutdown has impacted her & her daughters tremendously. Without the financial support of their father, a government worker, they will soon be unable to buy food, pay bills and buy gas. This is appalling.”

US representative from Illinois’ 10th congressional district Brad Schneider shared a twitter post: “Flying to Washington yesterday I met a TSA agent working without pay because of the shutdown, she is a single mother raising a 15-year-old daughter, and her family is struggling to make ends meet without her paycheck.”

The US representatives, especially from the democratic party, have taken these posts to their social media handles to share these stories of affected employees who are struggling to live without any pay.

House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi estimated affected American workers at around 8,00,000 people while asserting the US President Donald Trump to re-open the shuttered government.
