(CNN)The difficulties faced by civil servants forced to work unpaid at the time of closure did not simply disappear when President Donald Trump opened the government for three weeks on Friday.
Many of these approximately 450,000 federal officials were forced to withdraw from their savings or find other ways to spread their dollars because the suspension lasted for 35 days. Now they still have to wait for their salaries to arrive and wait to see the widespread effects of missed salaries.
Despite the Battle of the Capitol Hill, federal officials in the country continued to do their job. Here are some of the stories of those who were supposed to work during the longest government stop in US history:
Department of Homeland Security
Transport Security Administration
Citizenship and Immigration Services
Department of Justice
Ministry of Transport
Federal Aviation Administration
Federal Prison Bureau
Ministry of Finance
Tax Collection Service
Health and Human Services
Food and Drug Administration
Ministry of the Interior
National Parks Service
