D.C. poised to pay workers for 4 furlough days

The D.C. Council on Tuesday is expected to approve a $22 million version of a $20 million plan it unanimously rejected two weeks ago to repay District workers for furlough days they were forced to take last year, the Washington Examiner reported.

The furlough payment plan would convert four unpaid holidays in 2011 to paid days for tens of thousands of people who continue to work for the District government. The days had been scheduled as paid days until city leaders ordered the furloughs in a bid to close a $188 million budget shortfall.
