USG, a securities conglomerate, has been taking a chunk of their employees' wages in exchange for some of their security services. If an employee takes issue with this arrangement, USG has its own arbitration authority it pays for, and also pays the judge. USG also makes the laws the employees must abide by. USG also has its own detention facility, that employees are sent to if found guilty.
They try to justify this to the employees by arguing that they wouldn't be able to protect themselves without them, by arguing that their ability to vote for the CEO every 4 years provides them adequate bargaining powers, even though there are few differences between the CEOs up for election, and that if they don't like it they can work for someone else, providing that they pay them for a transfer identification card, and that they continue to pay them whilst working for someone else.

This question is also a warning to hubbers to do just that -...

The government shuts down every Friday and remains shut until Monday morning. It shuts down for holidays. The House and Senate shut down for long vacations and the country carries on. Is a government shutdown really frightful?
