Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, February 11, 2019

As of Thursday, some federal workers have not received back pay from the first Trump government shutdown -- even as a White House spokesperson says Trump is "on the verge" of initiating yet another shutdown. The continued lack of paychecks is just one of many headaches federal employees are facing in the aftermath of Trump's record-long, damaging 35-day shutdown. Alfreda Dennis-Bowyer, a USDA meat inspector in Delaware, is owed $9,000 in backpay, but she only received a check for $250.
And the chaos is not limited to federal workers. Some contractors have not been paid for work done as far back as October 2018, and are waiting for agencies to process a backlog of invoices.

This is why the whole Royalty thing doesn't work for America. We're supposed to be a country of folks that do honest work for honest money. The folks who inherited billions and play politics for fun just don't get that. Soon these folks will be homeless.

Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
