The union representing the United States' air traffic controllers is suing the Trump administration over pay that's frozen as part of the partial government shutdown.

The Federal Aviation Administration's air traffic controllers are among the 420,000 federal employees who have been deemed essential and have been ordered to work without pay during the shutdown, which began on Dec. 22 due to an impasse over funding for a wall along the U.S. southern border.

Fine, send them home and bring in the national guard to do security temporarily. Then bring in civilian companies to do it. It’s time for government to shrink.

They should sue the Democrat Party.

They’ve got lots of money.

Hi.

All spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives (except 0bamacare).

Sue Nazi Pelosi, she’s speaker of the House.

Generally no. Some unions maintain strike funds that divvy out small payments to help tide them over.

I've spoken to older women around here who remember their union husbands going on strike. They say that no matter how good the settlement turned out to be you never really recovered from the lost paychecks.

I am not buying the “without pay” part. Watch for the correction on that. If “without pay” were a thing, then why not military and TSA and FBI “without pay”.

This is either a bureaucratic snafu or and engineered propaganda lie.

Military is already funded. FBI and TSA are “shut down”.
