[quote]I'm right. No federal employees now will lose pay. It's a paid vacation for them. [/quote] Bingo!! I am a federal employee. In 2013 when they shutdown the government I was freaking out about not getting paid. We were off for 14 days. Only effect it had on my pay was that one paycheck...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
