Strike! Barbara Ehrenreich calls on TSA workers to walk off job in protest of government shutdown

As 800,000 workers continue to go without pay, federal employees around the country are rising up to demand an end to the shutdown.

The longest government shutdown in U.S. history is now on Day 27. As 800,000 workers continue to go without pay, federal employees around the country are rising up to demand an end to the shutdown, which has run public institutions ragged and left hundreds of thousands financially strapped. We speak with Barbara Ehrenreich, author of the best-seller “Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America.” She is calling for TSA workers around the country to strike.
