BOSTON - Although the government shutdown has ended with a continued resolution for the next three weeks, those furloughed employees here in Massachusetts are still struggling to get by.
After being officially sworn in to the 116th Congress by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Washington D.C. earlier this month, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley held a local swearing in ceremony Saturday at Roxbury Community College.
From the outside, Room 1108 in the Longworth House Office Building is unremarkable. Inside, it’s even less so. But to Ayanna Pressley — who is the first black woman to represent Massachusetts in Congress — it is everything.
The office symbolizes a kind of spiritual lineage for her: Fifty years ago, the space was occupied by Shirley Chisholm, the nation’s first black congresswoman.

A partial government shutdown, now in its fourth week, has left 800,000 federal workers without a paycheck. Hardest hit are those who can least afford to go without pay: federal contract workers who barely earn above minimum wage and probably won’t be awarded back pay.
Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D) took aim at President Trump on the House floor Tuesday afternoon as a partial government shutdown continued into its 18th day, accusing the president of bringing "dishonor" to the Oval Office.
