Excuse me for not opening a web site from a poster that I don't
recognise, even if it *looks* as though it might be photo-related.

It's why I switched to an Apple iMac! ;-)

Perhaps this will help you decide to take a look (at a very fine Eagle!)

Federal employees require Congress to pass an act to do so.
Contractors are in a much more complicated and varied situation.
Historically Congress has voted for back pay for federal employees.
Given they are forbidden from working without pay or volunteering this
in the end is just a big waste of the taxpayers money.

For some perspective on the repayment question, the last Govt shutdown
was back in October 2013.

Congress did introduce bills to provide back pay...

https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-...l/3223/actions
https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-...nate-bill/1567

....but did it actually pass in the Senate and get signed by POTUS?
Doesn't look like it, although I do recall hearing that back pay was
eventually granted ... in January 2014.

Even so, three months in limbo on if a check is ever going to happen...

FWIW, I'd find it interesting if contemporary politics were to pass the
"restore pay" bill now, while still during the shutdown...just how would
that change the political hostage-taking dynamics?

Yes I know, I was there. FWIW,we were given back pay then. Similarly
in '96 though I was a contractor then.

A good list, but it doesn't answer this side question, namely of how long it
took to get around to refunding the Fed workers who were victim of a lockout.

BTW, looks like these are the bills to watch for this go-around:

House:

Senate:
