AUSTIN, Minn. (KTTC) -- Since the government shutdown, only a select group of USDA food inspectors are still working. The inspectors arrived for work Wednesday morning at Hormel Foods, but the only difference is that today they will not be paid, and won't be paid again until the end of the shutdown.
It is unknown how long the shut down will last, but until then meat inspectors will have to find another way to support themselves.
