Air traffic controllers, the budget shutdown and the wrong end of the stick

 

I didn’t make anythink close to $125k a year and yet there was no time in my life except for five years after I graduated from college that I did not have an emergency fund of at least 6 months expenses.

There is no reason at over $125k these air traffic controllers could not have done the same.

I heard an interview today on NPR from the wife of one of them whining because she was not going to be able to take a VACATION this year if this goes on.

No one is say that the woman did not deserve a vacation but it does demonstrate that we are hardly talkin about destitute people here when it comes to providing the necessities of shelter and food on the table if inability to take a vacation is their biggest concern.
