Mackie's Pizza offers discount for workers impacted by government shutdown

Posted: Updated:

MARION, Ill. -- A pizza shop in Marion offers a discount to federal workers who aren't getting paid.

Mackie's Pizza will give people with a federal work ID 50 percent off their orders.

Owner John McPeek said a lot of federal workers eat at Mackie's and they need help while the government withholds their paychecks.

"It's really important to me," McPeek said. "I think that, as a country, we should all come together and stop fighting and bickering with each other. We need to help each other, and I feel like our country's not doing that right now."

The promotion will continue until the shutdown ends
