CINCINNATI: Thousands of employees across Ohio are suddenly facing life without paychecks.

A least 10,500 employees of either the Ohio National Guard or the state’s largest military installation were idled Tuesday by the partial federal government shutdown, with more cutbacks in federal agency and related offices.

Some 8,700 civilian employees at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton were put on unpaid leave, for what the base estimates as a loss of $5 million a day in salaries. The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force closed Tuesday, as did the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Just outside the federal building in downtown Cincinnati, Jennifer Dove was seeing fewer customers for hot dogs and sandwiches sold from her cart. She is worried about impacts on her federally subsidized housing, among other concerns.
