“Nonessential worker.” As I’ve been reading news stories about the longest U.S. Government shutdown in the nation’s history, references to “essential” and “nonessential” workers have popped up. Some of the workers who have been furloughed have spoken to reporters about how that label “nonessential worker” rankles. Nobody who has a […]
