KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the federal government shutdown continues into its third week, Sprint said it will work with affected employees.
In a release Tuesday afternoon, the Overland Park, Kansas-based telecommunications company said it was prepared to work with federal government employees seeking short-term payment solutions.
"As with any Sprint customer who hits a rough patch, we want to help and will take a look at your account to see what we can do," Sprint CEO Michel Combes said in the release.
Employees impacted by the shutdown can call (888) 211-4727.
Sprint joins other companies across the country in pledging assistance to workers. CNBC reported earlier Tuesday that certain banks and credit unions are offering loan assistance to workers.
