AFGE Warns of High Cost of Gov't Shutdown(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)With another possible government shutdown looming, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), warns that the cost to Americans could run into the hundreds of millions of dollars, “not to mention a restriction in services vital to the public.”  Congress’s failure to resolve differences on the payroll tax plan and pass a Continuing Resolution to keep the government running could affect basic everyday services like road, water, and meat inspection, for example. For more updates on the government shutdown and its possible impact on the metro DC area, visit the AFGE website; Union City will keep you posted on possible demonstrations on the issue via our website, Twitter and/or special editions.
