800,000 federal employees not getting paid.
Let's say average pay per employee is $150 a day.
800000150=120million
X 7 days = 840 million
All that's needed is to have a week-long shutdown every few months and we got the wall.  :)

Most are working without their regular paycheck. Would you not complain?
I just found a new supply of forks!

Did you ever have a paycheck delayed?

So if your employer said I can't pay you for the next X amount of weeks/months but you will probably get it you would just say "OK that sounds great"?

You must have never worked at a yeshiva  ;D

Except there, employees are still expected to work :)

Don't think for a second that it doesn't affect their teaching.

1) hourly workers will get screwed, and anyone that relies on OT

2) they will accrue interest on any debt they have to pay 

For most it is a free vacation but for many there are real downsides

It would take 30 such shutdowns to get to the 25Billion that trump was offered in the DACA deal (if your math is correct)

Seems many here have a selective memory and forgot all about this.

I agree. It is amazing how money which was so easily available and well spent when discussing DACA is suddenly a waste and unavailable when it is a fifth of the amount.

That's how deals work. You give something you don't want to give to get something you want.

What is trump offering now?

It really was a good deal for trump, because DACA is very popular and he could've taken credit for saving it.

Once Pelosi takes over he'll never get the wall.

The same way immigration was easier when people were trying to escape the holocaust than it is now?
