Government Shutdown, Furloughed Again
Posted by: chuckvh ()
Date: February 08, 2018 09:35PM

Corvair content: I get to stay home and work on my Corvair garage!

But first, I have to go to work in a non-pay status to issue furlough letters to most of my employees, who have to come in to work to receive them (non-pay status as well)

I could use the time off, but this is really getting old...

No different than a layoff in Commercial work

In a private layoff, it is the employer's problem to send notices. I've never heard of having to go in to work unpaid after being laid off.
Or do you get paid for it after things start up again?

The only way we get paid for the time is if special legislation is passed after the budget is signed or CR is extended. Five of my people are required to keep working without any pay for the duration of the shutdown to provide some measure of support to some critical military programs. They will definitely get paid at some point.

We are Department of Defense so the requirements are a bit different.

I visited a few years ago during the previous shutdown. My NASA tour in Houston was cancelled.

Politicians from all sides should just grow up and make a decision. It's not helpful to send people home, even if it does mean more time available on hobbies.

Thankfully no such thing has happened here but with Brexit looming who knows!

Solution found! Just print more money and spend, spend, spend. Inflation and high interest rates coming soon...

Shutdown averted. Fortunately, my current job seems to be exempt from shutdowns. The one we had 3 weeks ago had no impact on me, but there were folks on this base that were sent home.

It is easy to spend money you don't have but much more difficult to reduce spending. I wish Congress would be included in no pay during the shut down.

Sadly the budget has become a way to extract unrelated things from the opponents. Also sad is that the parties now act like opponents. What happened to the Peoples work? Appropriate the money needed for critical activities (military) and then argue about what to appropriate to other areas. It will never happen but they need to reduce spending. If we ran our household or business like they run the government, we would be in jail. Throw the rascals out.
