Federal workers get $0 pay stubs as shutdown drags on

This portion of Bill Striffler's electronic pay stub provided by him to the Associated Press on Friday, Jan. 11, 2019, with portions blacked out by him, shows his recent pay to be $0.00 for his work as an air traffic controller at Newark Airport. Some 800,000 federal employees, more than half still on the job, were due to miss their first paycheck Friday under a partial government shutdown as President Donald Trump and Congress remain at odds over funding for his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall.
