Dr. Edd Hind-Ozan joins me today to discuss the US Shutdown on his weekly segment called "This Week In Marine Social Science."
The shutdown is happening in the US because the US Federal Government cannot agree on how to fund the government; therefore, 800,000 federal employees do not get paid during the shutdown.
The bad part is that people have to worry about paying their bills. The other bad part is that people can't use government services such as museums that are federally operated. The Smithsonian-Marine Section is a place where people go to relax according to a new article. The closure could cause people to have the blues because it's not open.
Edd and I discuss the problems this could have on the mental health of people affected and not affected by the shutdown.
