Government Shutdown Could Soon Affect Federal Corrections Officers
CANAAN TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- After three weeks, there is still no deal to reopen the federal government, possibly leaving corrections officers at federal prisons across the country, and here in our area, without paychecks. Working conditions inside the federal prison near Waymart can be difficult to endure. And for people who work inside, it's been tougher than usual since the government shutdown began because they say there's a chance they will not be paid.
