Synopsis >

Federal employees returned to work Thursday (October 17) after Congress reached a last-minute deal to end the 16-day government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling. A stand-off between Republicans and the White House over funding the government forced the temporary lay-off of hundreds of thousands of federal workers from October 1 and created concern that crisis-driven politics was the 'new normal' in Washington.
