Federal employees are coming together today to march to the White House in protest of the government shutdown.
They are calling for the immediate end to the “costly and unnecessary” shutdown, according to a International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers press release.
“The health, safety and well-being of tens of millions of Americans is at risk due to this irresponsible and unnecessary shutdown of our government,” Paul Shearon, president of the IFPTE, said.
IFPTE includes scientists, judges and NASA workers, but the rally will include many other federal employees as wells as contract workers and other union members.
The rally will begin at the AFL-CIO headquarters at 12pm, ET, and will end at the White House.
