No pay for workers as Trump about to set new shutdown record

With no resolution yet, about 800,000 federal workers whose payment is due on Friday will remain unpaid.

    Friday marks the 21st day of the partial US government shutdown, same as the previous longest consecutive shutdown in the country's history.

    It is also the day federal workers are due for their payments. But with no resolution, about 800,000 of them won't be paid.
