    Adam, now I am even more confused. I thought all federal employees get a lump sum for work performed (only) at a later date. If they were paid through 1/15 why would they be starving now and soliciting food, diapers and other necessities on Facebook already.? If you know retro salary is coming your way you can use credit cards etc. – a vast difference then being totally out of work.

    The information provided on these shutdowns is confusing. Are there federal government employees that are actually on unpaid furlough? My neighbor (retired military) – works at NAS and according to him everyone there is working. He has never been in an unpaid status (neither in 2013 nor this time) He was paid retro active then and will be this time. Seems just a stupid game the political parties are playing at the expense of the working man. If they wanted to save money they would cut everyone’s hours like businesses or organizations would do.
