IOWA CITY, Iowa Dozens of federal employees protested the government shutdown outside the Veterans Affairs Hospital Wednesday afternoon in Iowa City. The union employees said they are fearful that additional furloughs could be on the way if the shutdown continues.

"We're out here in support of the 800,000 federal employees who aren't working," said Patrick Kearns, AFGE local 2547 president. Kearns, a hospital employee, said about a half-dozen VA employees have been furloughed while others are working without pay during the shutdown. "We just want congress to work together to end this."

The protest is occurring as thousands of people leave work at local Iowa City businesses and hospitals. Many motorists are honking their horns in support.
