The Federal Government’s partial shutdown – the longest in U.S. history, at 25 days and counting – has had a huge impact on the Federal workforce, the economy and the private sector for many Americans, from unpaid TSA screeners to contractors with halted government contracts or even Wall Street execs awaiting much anticipated IPOs.
