I was wondering when these Federal workers usually get paid. Did they receive a monthly pay check at the end of September, or are they waiting for it still?

My guess is that those on monthly pay were paid already at the end of September, and their next check will be at the end of October. At least I hear that usually monthly payroll is disbursed at the end of the month. Can someone elucidate so far as actual examples of federal workers are concerned?

Anyway I expect that the shutdown will be over long before, or at least by, the end of the month, and that they will be paid and not be docked anything in their pay. Information please.

I'm thinking that no one is out of money yet, based on this standoff over the cost of the new national insurance plan, no one on the federal payroll, no one who wouldn't have been anyway.

For those who are missing "services" it would be a completely different thing, but most complaints seem to be about the inconvenience for those who administer federal programs, and fewer about recipients of various entitlements.

what is interesting is these people are being paid but they want us to believe they will not be paid. obama and his followers are desiring to fool the country into a false security. the affordable health care / obamacare is the same program where so many have been fooled otherwise. i do not trust the fork tongued politicians
