State Department Taking Steps to Pay Employees Salaries

 

The Department of State is taking steps to pay employees who have been affected by the partial government shutdown.  In a statement released yesterday, the Deputy Under Secretary said the Department expects to resume operations and fund most salaries beginning on January 20th.  Employees will not receive paychecks for that pay period until February 14th.  President Donald Trump signed a bill Wednesday that will provide back-pay to federal workers who missed paychecks as soon as the government reopens.
