Governments usually extort money from their populace as a standard practice. However, the US government is now getting extreme about the practice. The federal government shut down for over two weeks and all employees stayed at home relaxing, watching TV, playing XBox, going on vacations, etc. Now that the shutdown is over, all of those employees are going to be paid JUST AS IF THEY WORKED THE ENTIRE TIME.
Can you tell me any job in the world where you don’t show up for work for two full weeks and then you still get paid?!? Ridiculous.
