91% Of The IRS Has Been Furloughed: Here Is Who Else Got The Government Shut Down Axe

For all the drama surrounding today's political drama (which came and went largely unnoticed by a stock market hypnotized by the Federal Reserve), the bottom line is that the key impact of last night's historic government shutdown has been nothing more (or less) than the temporary unpaid leave of absence, i.e. furloughs (with all accrued, owed payments promptly being remitted once the government is unhalted) of some 815,932 civilian government workers, out of a total of 2 million, or a 41% furlough rate.

As the WSJ tabulates "some agencies, such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics, are seeing all but a handful of their employees go home without pay. Others, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security, kept the vast majority of their workers on the job. Certain divisions of government, such as the U.S. Postal Service and the Federal Reserve, don’t operate under the normal appropriations process and their staffing remained unaffected." Then again one wonders: with 91% of the IRS' total 94,516 workers stuck at home, downloading porn, is the government shutdown really such an evil outcome?

The table below shows the total number of furloughed workers by government agency, as well as the furlough percentage. For a sortable, interactive version of the table, visit the WSJ.

My girlfriend would be included as part of the DoD employees who are furloughed. She wouldn't care about being furloughed if I had off from work too.

Amazing that they only let go those "no essential" people... guess it shows that a LOT of the government workers are not needed and therefore EXPENDABLE.... maybe they should all be let go and let them find a REAL job instead of working off of our taxes.....

My gf's team members are still working, but she is furloughed because she is part of an accelerated program that is run by another department/organization/etc of the government that prepares you for future leadership/management roles in your field. That department/organization/etc was told they are to furlough their people, hence my gf getting furloughed even though her coworkers aren't furloughed. If she graduated from the program or was just a regular team member and not in this program, then she would still be working. It's weird, it's hard to explain, I know I barely fully understand how it is structured. My gf is a mechanical engineer and her team is VERY vital to the government. They also outsource their services to private companies. They actually bring more money into the government than the government spends on them (salaries, equipment, traveling, facilities, etc.).

Government exists to expand itself and give itself gifts out of your wallet.....The FF's knew this, thus The Constitution.

These bastards have.....well....... bastardized it...... and now we are darn close to a hell hole.

EVERY FEDERAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE IS EXPENDABLE. Let's think for a moment. The US government stops existing, they will no longer pay anyone or employ everyone. Just exactly how are we the people impacted? Um.. I guess my federal case in court never gets resolved. Prisoners in federal prison get let out, and probably shifted to state governments, who will probably start shooting them on site, letting the no violent ones go , and the remainder stay put in the federal prison that is now taken over by that state government who is too poor now and shifts funds around to make sure the really bad ones don't get out. Is china suddenly going to attack? Is canada going to rub their hands and start their plans for world domination? IS mexico stupid enough to move north to be met with ranchers that would suddenly produce full auto machine gun parts? I don't think so. The nukes fall into the hands of the state that they exist on. Is iowa suddenly going to start launching missiles at newyork (stop stop don't get all excited they wouldn't). What break down of true society would happen? I mean, your world? NOTHING. The big issue would be if the federal reserve stops printing money, lol come on they aren't going to do that because they want their money. Will the dollar become worthless? Uh, how many dollars do you actually have? I'm not talking in you 401k, your bank, I mean actual paper? Well I can say in all probability not much. there is only about $7,000 worth of actual paper money for each american. Most of which have maybe $50 in their walet. If the federal government goes under our debt disappears. Banks cannot really collect on debt owed. No one has enough or the ability to get enough to make a cash payment and banks no longer can really operate because everyone just ran to get what cash they could out of every atm and opened bank. If a bank has no dollars to pay its members (that it owes to them) it's no longer. Sure they could try to foreclose but what sheriff is going to be able to process nearly every mortgage in his area for foreclosure? Um none. So instantly we are on the right path. Your mortgage and other debt to financial institutions is instantly gone. The zeros of electronic money no longer taking up pixel space from GTA V. Now comes the hard work. How do we survive? We need power, water, food.. Or do we? Suddenly we have no power? The electric company won't get paid and they no it. Massive deflation happens. The $2T in dollars become MORE valuable and harder to come by. Yeah, life suddenly is good, especially if you have $10k in hard cash sitting in a safe in your house, Please send me some. We need zero federal government, we need zero state government, we need zero local government beyond simple police protection. You'll have to find potable water yourself and grow some food or offer a service in which you can exchange for those needs. Trust me the world wouldn't end and we wouldn't get overrun by people killing each other except for maybe looting, which will promptly end with people having stolen so many tvs they cant power until there is nothing more to loot. Cities will die and everyone will look to find a plot of land in a state or federal park/forest/

Enjoy the inevitable destruction of mankind. However in all probability we'll fin a way to just keep the nonsense going.

When I was activated in 2001 after 9/11, I was assigned to a Headquarters job at Air Combat Command HQ, Langley AFB VA.

It snowed pretty heavily that December/January. So, the base commander decided non-essential personnel should not come in. Think it was two days.

So, 3-4 months after 9/11, no less than 80% of that base did not have to report to work because they were "non-essential".

And the same would be said for every other base in the Hampton Roads area. So roughly, 300k military members (likely a heck of a lot more)--while the fires were still burning in the wreckage of the world trade center--were deemed "non-essential" and didn't have to come to work because of snow.

I had to go in, and I remember how easy it was to finally get around.

Non-essential doesn't mean not important or not needed, it just means that they want the minimum amount of people there for safety' of property's sake, even though the work itself is being turned off.

That doesn't follow the "worship the military as idols" mantra, of course.

I hope all of you realize federal employees will get paid retroactively for the time they were furloughed.

They have each time previously.

The key is to not do that!

In today's political climate, I would be stunned if that happens.
