300 Furloughed National Guard Workers In Springfield Back On The Job


About 300 Illinois National Guard employees in Springfield are among more than a thousand around the state who are back on the job… almost a week after they were furloughed as part of the federal government shutdown. 

 

All those workers are federally-funded “military technicians” who perform a variety of functions on National Guard bases.  They were initially sent home without pay, but over the weekend, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel invoked a law that had been passed just prior to the shutdown, saying it authorized him to put those employees back to work. 

 

But even though they are on the job, they won’t be getting a paycheck until the shutdown ends and federal spending authority is restored.
