Tell Congress That Federal Contract Workers Deserve Back Pay, Too
U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross (D-NJ) just introduced the Fairness for Federal Contractors Act of 2019 (H.R. 824), legislation that would provide back pay for federal contract workers affected by the recent federal government shutdown.
More than one million federal contract workers lost a month of paychecks during the longest government shutdown in history and now they should receive the back pay they deserve. This legislation would ensure back pay is granted up to a maximum of $1,400 a week.
