Bentley's Pet Stuff Supports Furloughed Government Employees


Published:

 

Bentley’s Pet Stuff is providing 20 percent off for all furloughed government employees from Jan. 11 to Jan. 13.

 

Bentleys Pet Stuff has over 90 locations across 12 states in the U.S.

 

The federal agencies that are shut down employ more than 800,000 people who work in all 50 states, according to a Washington Post analysis of data from the federal Office of Personnel Management. The total of their reported salaries tops $1.4 billion per week, a reflection of their economic impact. The affected employees include those who are furloughed and not working at all, as well as essential employees who are still on the job. All are expected to receive back pay once the government is funded again.

 

“We do not like to see people and pets suffer because the government is shut down, and people are working without a paycheck, and not knowing when they will get one,” said Giovanni Senafe, vice president of Bentleys Pet Stuff.
