  1. Well, there is inherent absurdity in all this, but that backpay will either be saved, invested, or spent. They may not buy 2 sandwiches, but maybe a new TV from the 30 missed sandwiches and lattes. It pains me to say this but I see his point.

    • I disagree. Those who don’t have the cash reserves to get through the furlough don’t have a high percentage of discretionary expenditures, and people need to eat whether at work or at home. More importantly, any “extra” cash will mostly go toward interest on credit cards and payday loans that people used to keep the lights on.

  2. And also, like obviously it will impact the economy. You have close to a million people with good salaries who aren’t spending. No fucking wonder. Only some moron like Trump and the like would think otherwise.

  3. I wonder if this is another “benefit” In Trump’s eyes from prolonging this so he can have another excuse for an economy that is slowing because of his trade policy. Look tough to the base and an excuse for growth numbers that are not the 4,5,6% he was talking about with the tax cuts.
