It’s been a great season at the North Rim of Grand Canyon and it’s slowly winding down. But I may be leaving earlier than my October 15th end date if the government shuts down. I feel selfish thinking just about my own loss of revenue when 800,000 federal employees will also be affected plus the trickle down. Over 20,000 National Park Service employees will be put on furlough as the parks close their gates to the public. Sadly this also affects all communities surrounding the parks and visitors who had plans for vacations. I’m holding my breath that Congress will get their act together and pass a budget by midnight tonight.
How will you be affected by a government shutdown?
