How are fed employees paid?

Are they paid twice a month? Like the 1st and the 15th?

If that were the case, then the first payday they missed would have been yesterday.


Or, are they paid on a staggered basis, like some on the 1st and 15th, others on the 2nd and 16, others on the 3rd and the 17th, and so on. That might make some difference.

They'll get paid eventually. When this has happened before, they always get paid for the days off. As a farmer, I try to have sympathy for them, but it's rather tough. Haven't made a dime the last couple of years. My choice...their choice.
