Essential Government Workers Still on the Job

JACKSON, Miss.–The looming federal government shutdown came and went without a resolution on October 1 and on Tuesday that put many federal government workers at home.

Only the workers deemed essential to everyday operations and safety still went into work, and the military were the only ones getting paid on time.

“The local National Weather Service offices remain open and staffed, open 24 hours, 365 days, and seven days a week,” said NWS meteorologist Daniel Lamb in Jackson.

He said there’s no worry for anyone in Mississippi if bad weather approaches the NWS will still be on guard.

When asked if the discord in D.C. went on long-term what would happen he simply said, “We haven’t been told anything about that.”

At this point, anyone’s guess is as good as the next guy as Republican Mississippi lawmakers say people on the other side of the aisle aren’t even talking to them and vice versa.
