Ruptly is live from Washington DC on Thursday, January 10, as furloughed government workers protest against the shutdown outside the White House.

Nearly 800,000 government employees have been affected by the shutdown, which is already in its third week, making it the second-longest gap in government funding in the last 43 years. The longest happened between 1995 and 1996 during the Clinton administration.
