From the article:
More than a month after the longest government shutdown in US history ended, a significant number of Transportation Security Administration employees still have not received all of the back-pay they are owed.
These folks don’t exactly make that much. So nice of Trump and his tantrum to effect people working for the federal government that way.
One of the perks of not being a federal worker anymore for me was not having to go through this. I have the utmost sympathy for those workers and what they are going through.
I remember at the last much smaller furlough we had a couple of people quit and leave because of it. I imagine that is happening here too. People won’t stay in a job when our president can do this to them.
