Federal workers getting paid next week
October 18 , 2013
Most workers who were temporarily laid off and weren't paid for 16 days are expected to receive back pay within one week.
The back pay will show up in accordance to the the payroll provider used by each individual agency. However, reports suggest that most workers will begin to see it Oct. 25 onwards.
The good news doesn't end there: Federal workers will also see a raise in their cost-of-living pay for the first time in three years.
