Air traffic controllers, working without pay, ramp up shutdown pressure

Air traffic controllers, who are working through the government shutdown, won't be getting a paycheck for their last two weeks of work, their union confirmed Thursday morning.

Pay stubs reading a net pay of zero dollars were distributed Thursday morning, including one for a controller at a major air traffic control hub outside of Washington, D.C. shared with POLITICO.

Controllers and other aviation industry workers are planning to rally outside the Capitol building Thursday afternoon to call for the shutdown to be halted. They will be joined by several members of Congress from both parties and representatives of the airline industry, among others.

The blitz is intended to up the pressure on lawmakers and the White House to act to end the shutdown. On Thursday morning, shortly before the rally was to start, trade groups for virtually every sector of the aviation industry — airlines, airports, plane owners, business aviation interests and more — released a letter asking for lawmakers to find a way to reopen the government quickly.

"This partial shutdown has already inflicted real damage to our nation’s aviation system and the impacts will only worsen over time," the three-page letter to Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reads.

Trump is the monster created by irresponsible right wing rhetoric.  The GOP wanted to ride that wave as long as possible to fire up the base ... not realizing what they'd get when they unleashed the beast. He's the dictator those who find self governance too difficult have been waiting for.

If you could afford a ticket for a flight you'd change your tune.
