VIDEO: CEO gives up salary to pay workers during government shutdown


WASHINGTON — The shutdown may cause workers to leave a business in Northern Virginia.

A cybersecurity company, called Human Touch, relies on government contracts to pay the people who work there.

With no money coming in, the CEO has figured out a way to make ends meet for his staff.

“Great people are hard to come by,” Moe Jafari, who is the CEO of the company, said. “We don’t want to lose them.”

Jafari said 10 percent of the contracted workers were at risk of not getting paid because of the government shutdown.

“I am foregoing my entire salary during this time period,” he explained. “It affects a lot of people’s lives, and that was the right thing to do.”
