Letter: Using federal workers as pawns is wrong

January 14, 2019

Building a wall on the Mexican border is a divided issue. Some support it. Some oppose it.

That’s not the issue. But not paying over 800,000 federal workers is simply wrong.

Forcing a government shutdown as leverage to force the funding for the wall is bad government. Regardless of the position you take on the wall, using federal workers as pawns is unacceptable.
