yes, a good start is the cut anyone working for government with 6 figures salary, then reduce it to 5, then to 4. Anyone working for government should not be there to get rich
Six-figure saleries are very common for state (and city) workers in Calif. When govt workers retire, they can get a pension that is something like 98% of their prior salary PLUS they can go back to work and essentially get a double salary.
The state needs to go bankrupt.
