Those employed by the government may be back at work but many, many others are not. Which has been the case for so long now that it is no longer news. Not so long as it is possible to discuss who won and who lost the epic Battle of the Ceiling.

And lest, in the midst of our celebrations and end zone dances, we forget … there are those who have quit looking for work altogether, have gone on SSDI, are working part time, etc. etc.
But we can keep on borrowing so everything is fine.
