After missing Friday payday, Treasury says weekly wages will be ready Monday morning

Weekly paid government workers are expected to receive their wages today, April 24, after the Treasury Department missed payment last Friday.

Its inability to pay, the Department  said, was due to a system-wide outage over a two-day period, for which it apologized.

Reportedly, the system became operational only at the close of the business day on Friday.  

But the Treasury assured workers that its staff would be on the job throughout the weekend to ensure they receive their wages Monday morning.
