"The union views the concession as a win, since Schwarzenegger had started first- and third-Friday furloughs on Feb. 6."
"The furloughs will apply to SEIU workers working in departments run by constitutional officers, such as the secretary of state, the treasurer and the controller's Office. That provision is a win for Schwarzenegger, because the constitutional officers and the Board of Equalization had all told their employees to ignore last week's furlough. The governor has sued to force them to comply."
Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of Rum.
Arizona added to their “furlough” gig and fired 620 state employees yesterday. More to come next week. It looks like Bari’s “stimulus” is starting to kick in.
Obama’s machine begins grinding in earnest!
Aye matey. Now we are talkin. Sharpen yer cutlass and prepare to repel boarders.
Well, we’re willing to take on boarders, so long as they pay well and don’t complain much.
