Federal shutdown staring to ripple through states

< Previous Page

In Minnesota, some 100 Department of Health workers have received notices warning they may be laid off. So have 67 employees of the Minnesota Department of Military Affairs.

Having been through a state government shutdown two summers ago, Chad Olson, lead electrician at an Air National Guard base in St. Paul, said he’d be inclined to look for a new job if he winds up on indefinite furlough again. "I can survive, but I don’t want to put myself in a position where I can’t survive," Olson said.
