๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ US government shutdown: From lawyer to bus driver | Al Jazeera English



With no end in sight to the government shutdown in the United States, many furloughed federal employees have been forced to find new jobs.
School districts in the suburbs of Washington, DC, have held job fairs exclusively for federal workers, who may need the income while the government remains shut down.
With government workers scrambling for a paycheck, the schools want them to know that they have positions available.
Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from Maryland.

  21. When termites nest are in danger they grow a pair of wings to fly away.

  22. Good, government employees need to get real jobs anyway. No more rediculous benefits and perks at the expense of the American taxpayer.

  23. Ecclesiastes 11:2

  26. What's missing are tax dollars. Government is the biggest employer in the US. They rely on tax dollars. Fewer tax dollars are available (unless you're a politician). This is the future. The private sector can no longer support the government. The parasite has outgrown it's host.

  27. 80% of US workers live from paycheck to paycheck. Most are broke hos and deadbeats with huge student debts and credit card debts.

  34. This is why you don't choose snake oil salesman as your president

  35. lawyer becomes a bus driver? i thought such things only happens in cuba.

  36. This happens every year. Its foolish not to have a small savings of some sort and expect a delay in pay. This isn't new and it will continue happening.

  37. Itโ€™s not okay when the government workers became the bus driver and math teacher. Iโ€™m no American and i kinda understand about the walls and their intention about the border security. But come on Trump, those people are the one who able to make ur America great again and they had their family to feeds and bills to pay.

    Sorry for my bad ENG

  38. Starting trade war is a terrorist act. Force people to work without pay is enslary. Something is terrible wrong in US.

  39. A lawyer and no savings?
    God!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
