Senator from Texas Madam President I rise to strongly support the senator from Alaska the senator from Louisiana and the senator from Mississippi we should pay our post card coach it is not right that we aren't paying the Coast Guard right now every other military branch is being paid the Army's being paid the Navy's being paid the Air Force is being paid the Marines are being paid but the Coast Guard is not being paid even as they're risking their lives many of us in Texas and along the Gulf Coast saw the incredible heroism of the Coast Guard in the wake of Hurricane Harvey where so many brave men and women risk their lives to save thousands upon thousands of innocents they should be paid and Madam President I think it's important for the American people to understand what just happened here because it is highly consequential it is easy for things to get lost in procedural gobbledygook to assume well this is some back-and-forth about the shutdown about the wall has nothing to do with any of that what Senator Kennedy asked he brought forward a bill to pay that Coast Guard it did nothing else didn't address any aspect of the shutdown didn't address any aspect of the wall it simply said let's pay the men and women of the Coast Guard yes or no that means you can be a yes on that whether you think we need to secure the border and have a steel barrier or whether you support open borders it doesn't say anything either way it just says the men and women of the Coast Guard deserve paychecks we could have passed that right here today and there's one reason to one reason only we didn't because the Democratic leaders stood up and said I object and I would note that if there are Democrats on the Democratic side of the aisle that are not comfortable with that who agree that the Coast Guard should be paid let me encourage my Democratic colleagues to say so because it is their party's leader who is lodge an objection on behalf of effectively every Democratic senator and what they are doing the Democrats are fond of using the phrase hostage-taking they are quite literally holding the men and women of the Coast Guard hostage because they want to win a political victory against the president their objective here is have the president back down and have not a single mile of border wall built never mind that the Democratic leader and every Democrat in this chamber in 2013 voted to build and fund 350 miles of border wall 350 miles every Democrat in this chamber voted for we're in a shutdown today because they are now unwilling to fund 234 miles a border wall less than they voted for in 2013 now we understand politics rears its head in this business and the Democrats want to defeat the president politically and

As a government worker how does it feel to work without pay during a government shutdown?
Original Question: Why are government workers forced to work during the Government shutdown with no pay? (another poor question merge).When you choose to work in a critical capacity (one that affects life and safety), part of the contractual obligation is that you can’t strike and you have to keep working if required.Unfortunately, this “slave labor” provision is what enables government shutdowns. If Customs and Border Patrol were sent home rather than just not being paid, that would just open up all borders. The government would never have been shut down in the first place. So it’s only the government’s ability to mistreat workers that makes shutdowns possible.
How is the government constitutionally able to require workers to work without pay during a shutdown?
Yes. They signed a contract to work for the government. That contract certainly includes wording that the government at times may not be funded, so they will not be paid during that time. It’s not slavery since slaves were never offered the opportunity to negotiate their terms.Incidentally, and the media is not reporting this at all, the law is signed and in place right now to give furloughed workers back pay when the shutdown ends. They will get back pay to replenish their savings.So what does it say for the worker who, having seen prior shutdowns, has no savings to weather this one?
Does the government save money during a shutdown and, if so, how long would the shutdown have to last to pay for the Wall?
The government always loses money during a shutdown. It’s not like the employees not working aren’t going to get paid. They always do, and both sides in Congress have promised they would pass a bill ensuring it. Government agencies are still going to spend their budgets. The government often owes interest on late payments. Shutting down the government also costs the government in lost taxes and fees. People aren’t buying houses. Going on vacations to national parks. Not to mention the costs of restarting the shutdown agencies, cleaning/fixing the damage to national parks…Of course, the major hit is to the economy. Standard and Poor say that the 2013 shutdown cost the US economy 25 Billion. This, of course, eventually comes out of the pockets of hard working stiffs.Don’t believe me how about Rand Paul, and all the experts?Rand Paul rightly says the government shutdown was more expensive than keeping it open
How can I start a fund to pay the federal workers who are not receiving paychecks during the shutdown?
Real answer that sounds snarky but isn’t: we have a fund like that, it’s the US Treasury, and it only pays money to federal employees of Members of Congress vote to authorize it to do so and instruct the agencies to send out paychecks. So all we can do is pressure our Members of Congress and President to get these employees back to work and authorize a supplemental appropriation to pay them for the hours they agreed to work when they joined their agencies but were denied them at no fault of their own.There isn’t a way to take up a private collection. They won’t be allowed to accept it.
How is it legal for TSA employees to have to work without pay during the government shutdown?
They aren’t working without pay so your question is irrelevant and designed to be misleading.Every single employee, furloughed or working, will be paid for the entire time the government is “shutdown.”If you are concerned that their pay may be DELAYED, please contact Democratic Senators that are keeping the government “shutdown.”Please note that I use quotes around “shutdown” because it’s nothing of the sort.
