Federal Employees On The Cape Impacted By Shutdown
The Federal Government’s partial shutdown is continuing to impact federal workers here on the Cape.
The Director of the Falmouth Service Center says there has been an increase in clients in the last several weeks because of those workers who can't afford to buy groceries without getting paid.
The Family Pantry of Cape Cod in Harwich says it is offering food assistance to any Coast Guard families that are affected. Legislation has been filed at the state level to pay Coast Guard members until the shutdown is over.
