UPDATE 8:35 AM PT – Sat. January 26, 2018
The White House announces that federal employees who were unpaid or furloughed during the shutdown, can now expect their paychecks “in the coming days.”
This is according to a tweet from the White Houses’s official Twitter page.
Officials also acknowledged and thanked the public servants who had to work without pay and those who were furloughed.
The Trump administration’s post also gave a public nudge to those in Congress, saying “it is time to negotiate and address the humanitarian crisis on our border once and for all.”
Because of the President’s actions, Federal workers will be paid in the coming days.
To the public servants who have worked without pay and been furloughed, we thank you. To Congress, it is time to negotiate and address the humanitarian crisis on our border once and for all.
