Back in 1995 I had been working for a government agency for about 2 years. I'd echo comments from Marilyn and David. It was disruptive and stressful as no one knew when we'd be able to resume work, nor if we'd get paid during the furlough. So, not only was there the work stoppage, but during the weeks prior to the shutdown, it was on everyone's mind and no doubt sapped productivity much longer than the three weeks that it was closed.
