Because most shutdowns just last a few days, there is usually no delay in government workers getting their pay. Even if there is a delay, it is made up shortly after the thing is resolved. It just makes for more dramatic reporting to say that they will be going unpaid. Not exactly correct. Some shutdowns have lasted several weeks. And it can be a month or more before they pass the bill to pay back pay. So people have missed parts of one or more pay checks, and not getting the money for 2+ months. BT, DT.
