ABC 7 interviews DSFederal CEO Sophia Parker

Updated: Jan 8, 2020


DSFederal CEO Sophia Parker appeared on WJLA-TV last week, commenting on the federal government shutdown and its impact on local contractors and their employees. While federal workers typically receive back pay after shutdowns end, contractors and their employees do not, and lengthy government shutdowns can be devastating to these companies and their workers.

With federal employees either furloughed or working without a paycheck, and contractors facing permanent loss of income, the shutdown could have serious effects on the local economy as well. We remain hopeful for a speedy resolution that will put employees back to work and restore services to those who depend on them.
