Hundreds of corrections officers at West Virginia's federal penitentiaries will see delays in their paychecks for work performed during the partial government shutdown.
U.S. Bureau of Prisons employee Jill Carver is a teacher at the Federal Correctional Institution in Beckley. She's worried staff members won't have enough money for groceries or gas if the shutdown continues for very long.
Federal prison employees will receive a paycheck next week for work before the Oct. 1 shutdown began. But Carver says that paycheck likely would be small because it compensates them for a portion of their usual pay period.
