It’s unfair to give back pay to workers

Federal employees who have been out of work as a result of the government shutdown will receive back pay for the income they have lost. I don’t get it. I have been out of work for more than one year. My income has been cut in half and I can barely survive on my unemployment, yet I will never receive back pay for what I have lost.

It must be nice to have a taxpayer-supported job and receive special benefits. Those workers must feel proud of themselves knowing that the government considers them more important than the rest of us.
