Government spends billions on back pay after shutdown

Posted: Updated:

The 16-day government shutdown cost the federal government roughly $6 billion in back pay to federal workers.

That's the tally coming from the Office of Management and Budget's latest report.  Workers have since been reimbursed for the time they were furloughed.

Analysts estimate that the shutdown will slightly reduce fourth quarter GDP growth.
