They are ALL going to get paid anyway....they are just getting PAID TIME OFF!!
I’m a federal employee and I’m WORKING and not getting paid.
,,,and I WHOLEHEARTEDLY support Ted Cruz.
No, not all of us will be repaid. I work At Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville as a contractor. I work on-base, as my company runs the entire calibration lab.
I am sitting at home burning my vacation time so that I don’t lose money. 99% sure that our salaries won’t be repaid after the government goes back to work. There are likely more contractors than civil servants at MSFC. All of us will lose pay.
I support Cruz and the efforts shut down Obamacare. And it is costing me, literally.
You're the same on every thread with this.
Give it a rest.
When you are talking this large a population of people, that includes engineers, doctors and nurses who care for our combat wounded, teachers on bases who pour their hearts into their work for the parents of our deployed military, the low paid Navy shipyard worker, and mechanic laboring on an Air Force flight line fixing aircraft (up to 80% of maintenance at some Air Force bases are now civilians).
Furthermore, these folks are not "on vacation." They cannot go anywhere because they were told to standby for a call back, which occurred. They were/are not getting paid now, and they are prohibited from taking any other jobs due to regulations.
The are many slugs in the Federal government, especially in agencies like the Dept of Education and Health and Human Services. But a great many work for agencies like the FBI and DoD - and they WORK for this nation, they are not taking Food Stamps or SS Disability.
Dial it back. There is plenty of outrage to go around, the majority of these folks don't deserve it.
