“One reason is that Congress has sometimes granted furloughed federal employees back pay for the wages they missed. There is no guarantee that will happen this time. But after the 21-day shutdown from Dec. 16, 1995, to Jan. 6, 1996, more than $44 million was approved by Congress and the president to retroactively pay the 284,000 impacted employees, according to the Congressional Research Service.”
