Who’s Being Affected By The Shutdown
The partial government shutdown has been going on for two weeks now, and there are many people that are beginning to feel the effects. Besides the “non essential” employees that work for the government, the people who work at national parks that have shutdown, the group that is being effected the most are the elderly. Reading a NPR article explicitly explains how they are being effected and how the Meal on Wheels and other supplemental food programs have to stop delivering essential food supply to the elderly, which is a disgrace.
