Furloughed employees in Arizona to get back pay

PHOENIX -- Thousands of furloughed Arizona employees whose salaries are fully or partially paid with federal funds will be paid for their two weeks off during the government shutdown.

That word comes from Arizona Department of Administration spokesman Alan Ecker.

The 16-day federal government shutdown ended Wednesday night, and state and federal employees were back to work Thursday.

In Arizona, furloughed state employees included nearly 1,400 military and almost 190 civilian Arizona National Guard employees.

There's also about 450 people whose jobs are funded by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, some 250 Department of Economic Security workers and nine employees in the state's Office of Employment and Population Statistics.
