INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis barber Anthony Williamson is aware; he’s been watching the news and keeping up with the partial government shutdown.
The government shutdown is in its fourth week. 800,000 government workers are not getting paid, including TSA and other workers who still must show up to work.
Williamson, who owns J. Williamson Barber Shop, is offering free haircuts for government workers impacted by the shutdown.
You can find his barber shop on 10th street near Emerson Avenue.
Some people he’s offered haircuts to told him they didn’t want him to feel the same way they are feeling.
“They didn’t want to see me suffer by giving out a free haircut; in a way, it made me feel good. It is like everyone is looking out for one another,” said Williamson.
Despite the reluctance of some workers, Williamson said the offer still stands for any impacted government worker who needs a haircut.
“I want to use my talents given to me by God,” said Williamson.
