Just a thought about the 800,000 non-essential employees that were sent home when the government shut down. If you are saying each one of them worked 8 hours a day, it would be 64 million hours. Times that by just $7 an hour — not even minimum wage — and you get $44,800,000. I wonder where that money is going to go. Is it going to reduce the deficit? That is just for one day, too. And, if it is non-essential, why are there 800,000 non-essential employees?
