Rep. Davids Supports Bills to Ensure Federal Employees, Low-Wage Government Contractors Impacted by the Shutdown Get Back Pay


January 11, 2019

WASHINGTON — Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kan.-03)) on Wednesday announced her support for bills that would guarantee back pay to furloughed federal workers, and low-wage government contractors such as retail, food, custodial and security service workers who are not getting paid during the current federal government shutdown.

“There are more than 19,000 federal employees in the Kansas City metro and many other contractors who are not at fault for this shutdown mess and shouldn’t bear the burden of Washington’s partisan dysfunction,” said Davids. “Our civil servants and contractors need to support their families and we need to make sure they get paid for the important work they do.”
