Full government shutdown should be the last resort for any organization.

It goes on to state that twice as much force is required to move an object into motion.
This situation alone has pushed many United States contractors into bankruptcy or significantly reduced workforce as contracts we placed “on hold” or were simply cancelled all together. On a larger scale, a full on government shutdown created a tremendous amount of anxiety. It caused other nations to take a step back and consider recalling outstanding debt.
This created the second concern within United States contracting.
