A running list of problems caused by the longest-ever U.S. government shutdown – AOL News

The U.S. government is now amid the longest-ever government shutdown, as Congress officially adjourned for the weekend on Friday afternoon and the stalemate rolled into Saturday. And problems caused by the shutdown outside of D.C. are growing.The clearest problem is that approximately 800,000 federal employees are either on furlough or working without pay. For many federal workers, Friday would have been payday. Instead, their money is on hold while President Trump and Congressional Democrats continue feuding over border wall funding. An estimated 1/3 of the affected workers missed their checks today, with the remaining 2/3s set to miss theirs on Monday and Tuesday.
