While it’s unfortunate that this bill is even necessary, it’s not federal employees fault that Congress can’t get its act together. Those who get furloughed should receive back pay as soon as the shutdown ends like they have in the past.
The federal government shouldn’t pay employees who are furloughed for work they didn’t do. If such employees aren’t prepared for the possibility of a shutdown disrupting their finances they should look for work outside the government.
