They Wont. The people there are dedicated enough to work without pay. When this thing resolves, then they get paid.

Their pay is retroactive, afaik.

Codelyoko pretty much nailed it with better detail.

The thing is, this shutdown isn't a shutdown. Its a "We are going to take away everything from the people to make you look bad" tactic. The idiots that "shutdown" everything still get paid through all of this. The people that need that money? Tough luck till the baboons are done humping each other in the white house.
