They're worried they may lose their daycare spots
Rosalind Brooks says she is a single mother of two children who are still in daycare.
"With the government still shutdown, no income in sight, and savings running low, I may be forced to withdraw my children from daycare."
"If I have to, they will possibly lose their spot and I won’t have any care for them in the event we are forced to return to work without pay."
Michelle V says her husband is a furloughed employee of the US Forest Service. Being without his paycheck is causing childcare worries for her family too.
"Theoretically my husband could watch our girls, but then we would lose our spot and be in a heap of trouble when the shutdown ends," she says.
