Approximately 80% of Federal Employees Are Still At Work

Despite the "government shutdown"


THE CHAINS OF THE LAW HAVE BEEN BROKEN. Oh, wait—no, sorry, that was just a little gas.

Lamest apocalypse ever:

They call it a "government shutdown." But of about 4.1 million people who work for the federal government, about 80% will still be expected to show up for work.

We still don't have an exact number of federal employees who won't be working in a shutdown, but most press reports have been pegging the number around 800,000, the number who stayed home the last time the government shut down in 1996.
