'I can't afford gas in my car' Furloughed Federal Workers Protest at Sacramento Airport

After 26 days working without pay because of the federal government shutdown, Susan Braverman of Sacramento says she’s near her “breaking point.”

“Money is tight,” said Braverman, a lead transportation security officer at Sacramento International Airport. I maybe have a couple more weeks left of money before I’m no longer able to pay for childcare.”

On Wednesday she joined a group of about 30 furloughed federal workers, allies, and elected officials in front of the Sacramento International Airport to protest what has become the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.
