10-Day Partial Government Shutdown Continues

The now 10-day partial government shutdown continues to take its toll on people and businesses alike. Wall Street, however, isn’t suffering as much anymore; the Dow Jones industrial average increased by more than 300 points on Thursday. This occurred after talks with Republican leaders and President Barack Obama, where they seemed almost willing to finally end the shutdown. This is reassuring news, considering that not everyone can do as great as Wall Street. The shutdown has put over 800,000 federal employees out of a job, leaving them without pay until the government can come to an agreement.
