ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A group of protesters angry at congressional inaction at the government shutdown rallied in Albuquerque Wednesday.
Several dozen protestors marched in front of the Social Security office with signs reading "Stop the shutdown" and "People are getting hurt."
One of those protestors was one of the thousands of New Mexicans suddenly without a paycheck.
"I was furloughed, and I find it very frustrating because we do important work at the federal government," Shelly Mund told KRQE News 13. "I think the government is an important and honorable thing, and it offends me."
Many people participating in the protest have been furloughed due to the shutdown or have family members that have been affected.
