  1. Since government contractors outnumber actual employees by a large factor and since government agencies usually started suspending contracts about a week or two before actual shutdown, has anyone looked into the effects on these workers? Unlike government employees, contractor employees will not get paid for days where their contracts are suspended. Of the 12 years I worked at NASA, all were at subcontractors on the SFOC, STSOC and SOC contracts.

  2. It is all part of a cruel game politicians play. I wonder what would happen if the politicians also no longer get payed at a shutdown. Would there ever be shutdowns again or will they do what they have to do and that is to run this country.
