government always get paid back after sesquestration
Although their hours might be cut to 32 hours a week, they will get reimbursed for the lost time after sesquestration is over. They are not required to work the missing time in order to get paid fr the day each week that they didn't work. It has happened every single time during past sesquestrations. However, non-government employees affected are the ones who get screwed. And screwed over again working for a company who always use strong-arm tactics to get free unpaid work out of their employees.
