Living & Working in Great Places
Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!
This is my first year planning to do seasonal work, and my wife and I have been offered a job at a National Park.
We have one concern, and I'm wondering if anyone else may know what your companies are doing, or what your plans are in case of this:
What if the government shutdowns on April 8 and does not re-open for the summer? We're worried about leaving our jobs for this, and aren't sure what to do.
Seems likely the budget that wasn't passed by Oct 1. of last year won't be dealt with in the next week, and if so a partial shutdown including the NPS seems likely for at least a little while.
Any thoughts? Anyone still around that was doing this in 1995 during the last one?
I wouldn't bank on that... here's how it went down last time (1995)
TIME is saying it looks like shutdown is inevitable, at least for a short period of time. http://swampland.blogs.time.com/2011/04/05/are-we-heading-for-a-gov...
