The government shutdown has affected the lives of many. Security guard, Faye Smith, tearfully explains the hardships she faces as a result of the shutdown. Without receiving her steady pay she could possibly face eviction soon.

According to Washington Examiner Smith moved to Washington from Atlanta four months ago in order to be closer to her grandchildren, two of whom have now offered to drop out of school and take jobs to help her pay the rent now that she has been furloughed.
