Federal workers hold rally in downtown Denver demanding end to shutdown
DENVER -- Thursday was the 20th day of the partial government shutdown. Federal workers in Denver took to the streets Thursday afternoon to share their frustrations of having to go without pay. More than 100 people gathered downtown hoping to send a message to lawmakers. “I thought this would be over pretty quick," one furloughed worker said. “I thought about filing for unemployment. I’m going to have to if they don’t see reason by the end of this week.”
