Why does everyone think everyone who worked in the government lost their job? They are still working, but will not receive pay until budgeting is decided on. If they don't work, they are fired. If they get a new job until the government comes back up, they are fired.

You don't just have federal prison guards, for example, stop working and go home. When I was a Deputy US Marshal in ~1995 they shutdown the government. I still had to work, just for no pay until things were started back up.

But then comes the question of "what if it never comes back up for 1-2 years?"

A bill has to be passed eventually.
