Janitors at Walter Reed aren't getting paid according to WTOP.

Some workers are missing out on two paychecks.

More than 300 workers say they were supposed to be paid on Friday by ESCAB Enterprises incorporated.

But even before that, some workers received bad checks in the previous pay period.

ESCAB told the janitors they couldn't pay them because the government has not paid the company, according to the article.

So the union representing the janitors wants the government to pay the workers directly and withhold payment from the company.
