Read the article.

SWA reimbursed the FAA for the inspector's time. They didn't cut him a check. Nothing indicates he'll be double-paid.

FAA inspectors recalled to their jobs without pay were supposed to conduct almost exclusively oversight and other functions directly related to the agency's core safety responsibilities. The FAA and Southwest entered into a reimbursable agreement to provide minimal time to complete aircraft certification services.
Clearly, it's allowed.

Arizona paid to keep the Grand Canyon gates open during the shutdown. The Park Service was funded through state revenue. New York paid $65,000 a day to keep the Statue of Liberty open.
