Over 580,000 federal contractors were furloughed during the 35-day government shutdown, losing access to vital work and wages and putting them into significant financial trouble. While federal employees are set to earn backpay on their missed wages, federal contractors are not set to receive any compensation for their missed work weeks. Federal contractors keep this country running and perform the vital tasks that allow agencies and government buildings to operate smoothly. We should honor their service to our country by paying them the wages they would have earned if Trump didn't hold their paychecks hostage for a political stunt.

Signed,
