AFL-CIO: Veterans Among Hardest Hit With Shutdown

Statement from AFL-CIO Union Veterans Council Executive Director Will Attig on the government shutdown:

It is disgraceful that an estimated 248,400 veterans across the country are not receiving paychecks because of dysfunction in Washington, D.C. Our veterans who continue to serve by protecting our borders, guarding prisoners and stopping terrorist attacks at airport do not deserve to be used as political pawns.
