Mueller, She Wrote owes much of our success to the patrons who support us. When we found out that some of our supporters were being hurt by the government shutdown, we wanted to do what we could to give back to them. 

We are starting this campaign to help one of our patrons that we heard about who is suffering because of this extended and entirely reckless shutdown. Please read their story below and donate what you can. Any little bit helps. 

She is one of the 800,000 Federal Employees who is currently affected by the partial government shut down. Specifically, she was one of the 380,000 employees that was placed on furlough due to being deemed non essential. That is until this week when 46,000 IRS employees had their classifications changed to excepted and ordered to report back to work.

When the shutdown began shortly before Christmas, it forced her and her partner to scramble to be sure they could make ends meet. Her last full paycheck was luckily just enough to cover January’s rent, but only just so. She figured this couldn’t possibly drag on and they should be safe. Once the shutdown became the longest in our government’s history she applied for unemployment benefits so they wouldn’t be relying solely on one source of income. While her claim was approved, she was not allowed to request payment until January 20th. Now that she must report to duty on the 18th that effectively rips the monetary relief they were counting on out of my hands.

Her job at the IRS is her first full time position since graduating from college in 2017. She was (and still is) excited to serve the American Tax Payer and do her part to keep our government running. However, to be forced to do so without being compensated goes against her 13th Amendment rights. She's just doing what she can to keep a roof over my head, food on the table, and enjoy her rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Any help is appreciated and means more than she can truly express.

All donations will go directly to AM.
