Man Worth $700 Million “Doesn’t Quite Understand” Why Unpaid Federal Workers Are Using Food Banks

The Hill reports:

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Thursday that he was confused why thousands of federal workers, who’ve already missed one paycheck, are relying on food banks during the partial government shutdown.

Ross he didn’t understand why some of the more 800,000 unpaid federal workers have flocked to food banks for meals instead of taking out loans against back pay guaranteed by a bill President Trump signed last week.

“I know they are and I don’t really quite understand why,” said Ross, who’s reportedly worth roughly $700 million.
