Government Paid $2 Billion to Furloughed Workers

Posted: Updated:

Federal workers furloughed during last month's partial government shutdown will receive about $2 billion in back pay, the White House said Thursday.

About 850,000 federal employees were furloughed for at least part of the 16-day shutdown, leading to a loss of 6.6 million work days, the Office of Management and Budget said in a report detailing some of the costs of the fiscal standoff.
