Low-wage federal workers are among the most vulnerable people in government shutdowns — this bill would protect them from some of the worst effects of shutdowns by at least giving them back pay once the government’s reopened.
The workers affected by this bill can easily find other, similar work outside the federal government, as many places need janitorial, cafeteria, and security staff (which are the main jobs occupied by low-wage federal contractors).
