"Back pay for furloughed fed workers?"
As far as i am concerned "No work no pay...welcome to the real world". I have never had a job where i was gifted with paid days off for any reason. Didn't have to work for a few days, think of all the gas they saved...Unemployment starts next week anyway.
That's as bad as slo learner getting sent home with full pay after she lied to Congress....She was off for 4 months, and like magic, the day before management was about to ditch her...probably because of the liability she is, she turns in her resignation and draws full pension and benefits... And now that she is a private citizen.....but the government still pays her, i guess she doesn't have to testify before Congressional oversight?
I bet money she was the one taking orders from the top and was told that if it all went backwards she would be taken care of...
I have never been fired from a job but i would expect anyone who was caught for being blatantly dishonest would be terminated on the spot and forget retirement benefits... Those are earned with years of loyal service.Watch Holder run when Issa gets a little close to the truth.
They need to be made examples of....Damn baseball players get more grief for breaking baseball rules the government employees who commit felony's....hell, they get rewarded
