President Donald Trump is arguing that a looming government shutdown would be "devastating", but over the past five years he's repeatedly praised shutdowns as a legislative tactic and even argued they are good for the country. Larger companies may find other work or allow employees to take paid leave, but for some contractors, a government shutdown means no work and no pay, and generally no back-pay.
If McConnell forces the government to shut down by refusing to pass that bill, Brown says members of the military must get paid and members of Congress should not. So the troops just received a paycheck, and they wouldn't be due for another one until February 1. Paychecks would be delayed only if the shutdown lasted beyond February 1, because pay is issued only twice a month, on the first and the 15th.
While active duty military personnel will continue going to work, most civilian Department of Defense employees not deemed essential would be furloughed, said Christopher Sherwood, a Pentagon spokesman.
Social Security, Medicare and unemployment benefits would be paid, but new applications for those payments could be delayed. Earlier "shutdowns" did not always entail an actual stop to government functioning and often were simply funding gaps will little real-world effect. Other offices could completely shut down.

A government shutdown would be disruptive to research and morale at the National Institutes of Health but would not adversely affect patients already in medical studies, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the agency's infectious disease chief. But most of what the federal government does in domestic policy - overseeing grants and contracts and regulating businesses, for example, remains at least one step removed from everyday life.
WASHINGTON TOURIST SIGHTS: Popular tourist destinations such as the Smithsonian closed, with barricades going up at the Lincoln Memorial, the Library of Congress and the National Archives. However, park services requiring staffing, like maintaining campgrounds, full-service restrooms and concessions, will not be operational. With that said, if a shutdown occurred Friday it would be unprecedented, given this has never before occurred while a party has controlled the White House and both houses of Congress.
Critical services like Social Security, air traffic control and the TSA will continue to be funded even if employees are not.
In addition, make sure that any direction you receive from the government comes from someone with the proper authority under your contract to provide that direction; otherwise, you might end up working "at risk" and not be able to recoup your additional shutdown-related costs. Bowser says the Washington Department of Public Works would assume trash collection and snow-clearing duties for the 126 Park Service properties across the District.

That would mean almost 45,500 IRS employees would be sent home just as the agency is preparing for the start of the tax filing season and ingesting the sweeping changes made by the new GOP tax law.
