For the second time in a month, federal workers woke up wondering if they would be headed to the office, or if they should follow shutdown procedures. Max Stier, president and CEO of the Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit focused on federal government management issues, told WAMU that the federal workforce has great morale, but the shutdowns still have an effect, particularly on recruitment and the way the public views government. He suggests that a biannual budgeting process could help the problem.
