I've nothing to add. Just a regular ole Joe that understands the working man.US Department of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross says he does not understand why federal workers who have already missed one paycheck as a result of the government shut down have been relying on food banks to keep food on the table.
Mr Ross suggested that the 800,000 federal workers - who have not been paid as a result of the shutdown fueled by Donald Trump’s refusal to sign a funding bill that does not include border wall funding - should just take out loans to put food on the table.
“I know they are and I don’t really quite understand why,” Mr Ross said on CNBC’s Squawk Box when asked about the use of food banks.
