Is anyone else getting the feeling that most of the American people are ignoring congress and the government shutdown? Congress recently passed a bill to reinstate pay for some government workers and their supervisors said, ‘Great, get to work!’ But there are thousands of others who are still waiting. Instead of marching on Washington, and occupying something or screaming “for the people of the people” it’s almost as if we’re doing just fine without the politicians, kind of. But as Americans, we do care about our own family and friends.
Over the past eight days since the shutdown, someone set up a Google Doc on Unfurlough.us for freelance jobs to be posted for government workers. 1776 saw the document and polished it a little, said TechCruch, “with a new design and a more sophisticated data backend.” Looks like a talented freelance graphic design professional helped.
