The manager of drivers facility services says her staff will show up tomorrow like any other day. Today they had a steady stream of people getting new i-ids, taking the driving test and renewing their plates. They expect the same tomorrow. "In our paycheck, we got a letter from the secretary of state stating all offices will stay open business as usual."
Business as usual for those people waiting in line but not those behind the counter. They may not get their next paycheck. "I haven't heard a lot of complaints from employees we've never closed and they've never not paid me."
The Governor says workers will be reimbursed for the hours they've put in. Workers here and at i-dot.. trust that'll happen. Road crews have been busy finishing up months of summer projects and the threat of those workers leaving empty handed is enough to make the taxpayers who foot the bill worry.
"It'll be unfortunate for the different workers if they don't get taken care of, It'll put them in tight situations it will also be bad for moral," said a local taxpayer.
If the paychecks are delayed. workers can take out no interest loans through the state..to get by in the meantime. They were also told.. their health insurance will remain active .
