Shut­down self-de­s­pair

Houston Chronicle - - NATION | WORLD -

Re­gard­ing “Shut­down is hurt­ing many work­ers like me” (Out­look, Fri­day): All em­ploy­ment, gov­ern­ment or pri­vate, is de­pen­dent upon proper re­sources to pay for it­self. This doesn’t mean all work­ers are merely hostages or pawns to their em­ployer’s bud­gets.

Yes, the con­tin­ued em­ploy­ment of all gov­ern­ment work­ers is de­pen­dent upon Con­gress fund­ing their par­tic­u­lar de­part­ments. The au­thor knew that when he chose gov­ern­ment work. Jerry K. Deutsch, Seabrook
