    Default Trump Gives Fed Employees Christmas Eve Off

    Trump Gives Federal Employees Christmas Eve Off
    GOVEXEC STAFF | DECEMBER 18, 2018 8:45 PM ET



    President Trump issued an executive order Tuesday evening closing federal offices and excusing employees from duty on Dec. 24.

    Under the order, "the heads of executive departments and agencies may determine that certain offices and installations of their organizations, or parts thereof, must remain open and that certain employees must report for duty on December 24, 2018, for reasons of national security, defense, or other public need."

    Thank you Mr. President
    I trade based on volume + price action. Price action alone only tells half the story.

    Default Trump Gives Fed Employees Christmas Eve Off

    Actually, I think we may be getting the rest of eternity off after Friday this week. At least that is looking possible right now...

    Happy Furlough!

    (Sigh)

    I have to work with a chance of not getting paid for it because I am an 'essential' employee.
    Meanwhile, everyone in the Federal building gets a free paid vacation. Or at least they did during the last shutdown.



    Sometimes I wish I had stayed in the private sector.

    If that happens I'm glad I didn't overspend on Christmas gifts this year lol. As long as they back pay us if it's an extended furlough.

    Had been through three furloughs in my career and always got paid! Of course there's always a first time but not likely. Sounds like shutdown may not happen this year however.

    News this morning is the shutdown is not happening. If you did work during it it with even with the shutdown you get double time, when the pay goes through.

    Thanks for the information. I just worked off this morning and didn't get to check the latest news.
    I am thankful for my job. But things like these shut downs make me think........Why do we have "non-essential" employees?
    Shouldn't everyone that works for the government and is paid by tax payers money, be "essential?"
    I am ignorant when it comes to politics. And I am sure I am just how "they" want me to be! lol

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    I thought all federal employee's got double time for working holidays, No?
    I'm a nurse at VA, and an "essential" employee, if we work any holiday we get double time including extra ones that are announced. I got it for Bush's day of morning too. If I work Monday I will as well.

    The day we ever don't get back paid after a furlough is when I start looking for a job elsewhere. When I can't count on my employer for a reliable source of income is when I'm gone
