FBI families will spend Christmas without a paycheck. This president promised Mexico would pay for the wall but innocent people are now paying the price for another lie. Our thoughts are with hardworking public servants and their families.— James Comey (@Comey) December 23, 2018
Per OMB guidance, checks for Pay Period 26 (December 9-22) will be processed as usual. Which means federal employees will get their normal direct deposit between December 28 and January 3.— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) December 23, 2018
It's the paychecks *after* that, starting with Pay Period 1, that are stopped. https://t.co/RT1wroDWWr
This, of course, makes perfect sense if you think about it for just two seconds. The money for December 9-21 salaries was appropriated and obligated. So those payments can be sent as part of normal shutdown operations.— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) December 23, 2018
It's the pay period after that where there is no money.
It's like Democrats have suddenly forgotten how payroll works. You get paid for that LAST pay period's work, folks.— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) December 23, 2018
This is a lie. Literally no federal employee will spend Christmas without a paycheck according to OPM. https://t.co/KnKnGe3FX7— The H2 (@TheH2) December 23, 2018
