    First it IS about greed. Second, your OP statement is so full of flaws that it's hilarious. Thirdly, trying to link this to the shut down (regardless of fault) and not greed is a huge leap. Anyone with any intelligence can see this.

    I was entertaing the thought that the workers were doing this to force the Govt to pay "essential" workers during a shutdown.

    Remember, if you dont have money to pay your bills, than you have late charges, possible extra bank charges, ect.

    According to the Fair Labor Standards Act - As stated in the article the govt workers are entitled to it.

    Apparently ALL govt employees recieved back pay for time NOT worked. Let me get this straight - they get two weeks of free vacation time - and are paid for it - yes the pay was late in coming - BUT was is the purpose of a shutdown if they get paid in the long run?

    No wonder our govt is in such bad shape - the inept decisions of Congress.

    Note: Not really complaing about the govt workers - as they are caught in the middle.

    Uh ...

    [​IMG]

    ... "federal workers deemed essential" by their individual departments were required to work through the shutdown, and were paid. Anyone who didn't work, isn't essential.

    Dismiss the lawsuit. It's fraudulent.
