As I said on the thread before it was lost in the reboot, Federal Civil Servant pay exceeds or at least matches civilian pay for comparable education and training in the private sector. I don't feel sorry for them. I noticed when doing some online banking yesterday, that US Bank has a notification on their website that federal employees can get an advance on their pay. As was mentioned, Congress has already passed and the President has signed a bill guaranteeing back pay. Therefore, it is much like paid leave.

I think the media focuses on the ones that provide more drama. Obviously, they are not going to show a bunch of US EPA employees having a Government Shutdown party at the Rock Bottom Restuarant and Brewery on the Downtown Walking Mall, which is just up the street from the EPA office where I spent 5 years. Man, I miss some of those good times. Downtown Denver is fantastic.

Even pick up your medicinal prescriptions at the same time.
