After the Shutdown: Will Federal Employees Get Paid?
By Ralph Smith

Pay After a Shutdown is Unlikely Says Congressman


According to Virginia Congressman Jim Moran, federal employees are unlikely to get paid this time around.


"There will be no reimbursement," he said on a conference call with reporters this week. He also stated that "There is little likelihood that there would be reimbursement of employees, at least those who were not considered 'essential' and not on the job."

Back pay in this event is not automatic. Congress will have to pass a bill to reimburse federal employees who worked during the shutdown and those who were sent home.

1. Agreed. It is not automatic. Congress has to approve it.
Democrats need to submit a bill to pay them. Let them vote and see how it hangs with the Republicans.
