Federal Workers Miss First Paycheck as Shutdown Continues

Hundreds of thousands of federal employees missed their first paychecks as the partial government shutdown stretched into its third week.

An estimated 800,000 workers went without a payday on Friday, and it's unclear when they'll see another one.

The partial shutdown began on Dec.

22 and entered its 21st day on Friday — making it tied for the longest shutdown in history.

It all stems from the fight over funding for President Trump's proposed border wall.

He wants $5.7 billion for part of it, and the Democrats have said that they won't accept any deal that includes money for it.

And according to estimates by S&P Global Ratings, the shutdown has cost the American economy $3.6 billion so far.

Government workers across the country have protested the shutdown, pleading with lawmakers to reach an agreement so they can return to work.
