Furloughed federal workers protest shutdown
(ST. LOUIS) – Furloughed federal workers made their voices heard in Wednesday morning in north St. Louis.
They set up an informational picket at the federal center on Goodfellow, which was one of several protests organized by the American Federation of Government Employees.
The demonstrators are upset that they’re not getting paid, while lawmakers are fighting over funding federal agencies, causing a partial shutdown of the federal government.
The group Organizing for Action held a similar protest downtown in front of the VA office.
