Government contractor

I am an individual government contractor who provides language services to Spanish speaking parties who must appear in court. I am also a single mom who depends 100% on my contractor income, to support my family.

The fact that my services will be utilized on a far less frequent basis, since the partial government shutdown, significantly affects my ability to support myself and my family. The pay of Republican lawmakers should be suspended, until all hard-working government employees' and contractors' livelihoods are fully restored.
