Photos: Ten cities hit hardest by federal shutdown -- and where Colorado Springs falls
As we enter day three of the U.S. government's partial shutdown, ripple effects are being felt far and wide -- and while Washington, D.C. has the country's most federal workers, it may not be the hardest-hit city. The Washington Post has assembled a list of the ten cities with the most federal jobs by percentage, and Colorado Springs is well above D.C. As the Colorado Springs Gazette points out, military personnel are still getting paychecks, which has mitigated the impact -- but if the shutdown drags on, that could change. Count down the photo-illustrated top ten below.
Big photos below.
