My friends in the craft beer industry have come through once again!
The government shutdown is the longest in U.S. history and among the hardest hit are the federal employees who just passed a payday without a paycheck. Many businesses and individuals are helping these workers where they can, from restaurants offering them free meals, to Canadian air-traffic controllers sending pizza to their U.S. counterparts. You may wonder how you can help. Thanks to new website PayItFurloughed.com, you can at least send a furloughed worker a beer or two. As the site explains, “Beer makes everything better, so we’re buying local craft brews for federal employees impacted by the government shutdown.”
… You can send out one beer for $7.50, two for $15, or a six-pack for $45. Any furloughed employees just have to show their federal I.D. at one of the participating breweries to collect.
