You're looking at the pay stub of an air traffic controller, from new jersey.
After working more than 60-hours since the partial government shutdown began...his net pay zero!
He's among the eight hundred thousand federal workers who missed out on pay today.
There may be some relief until the standstill is over.
Channel 5's sierra pizarro joins us with more.
The relief is coming from a bank -- wells fargo.
They're doing two things: they're reversing fees like: transfer and overdraft fees-- which can be three or fifteen dollars... and they're helping federal workers who are having trouble with loan payments.
We are here to support them.
We really feel this is unfortunate this is happening to them, through this difficult time.
We, as wells fargo, are here to support them at this time.
Please come and talk to us.
Anyone needing to find out more can stop by the bank or call.
Today marks the third week since the government partially shutdown.
Congress approved a bill to pay back all federal employees once the shutdown ends -- but that doesn't help those needing to pay bills now.
