As the partial shutdown of the federal government stands poised to enter its fourth week, many organizations are using their platforms to call for a resolution.

The shutdown becomes more painful today as many federal workers miss their first paycheck, and many are speaking out against having to work without pay, including tweets using the hashtag #ShutdownStory.
