So as of today all govt employees on furlough are getting back-pay.

So basically....it's a paid vacation. The only people losing money and being inconvenienced are the US taxpayers

You could argue that the "essential employees" are losing out too---they still are working and not getting any extra pay while those not working are getting paid to do nothing.

I heard that they were going to be ordered back to work. Let's hope so, so that the "essential" workers (those who are already working for a future paycheck) won't be at a disadvantage.

Its really being felt here on the shore, Assateague National park is closed,(along with its CG), along with the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, both of which are huge tourist attractions here. local private CG`s are reporting cancellations due to the beaches and wildlife sanctuary being closed. NASA Wallops Island is also at a stand still.
