A shout-out to over 200,000 State Of California employees: You want fries with that ?

Best get used to it.

You’re being paid the same amount of money the fast food industry offers.

Sort of.

For now.



Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s order to pay 200,000 state workers just the minimum wage sent a signal to California lawmakers: In the impasse over closing California’s $19 billion budget deficit, Schwarzenegger is ready to play hardball.


Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear said the change should be reflected in state employees’ next paycheck. Workers will be paid in full retroactively once a budget is passed.


The order, which was in a letter from Department of Personnel Administration Director Debbie Endsley to State Controller John Chiang, said that most state employees would be paid the federal minimum of $7.25 per hour for the July pay period. Managers who are not paid on an hourly basis would see their pay cut to $455 per week.


SEIU is ‘still talking’ with the state about this ‘itty-bitty lil’ thang’……………….. Still talking – So that’s what they’re calling it now, eh ?

The whole thing is uber-nuts, because as soon as the mess being dealt with is over and a budget is passed, the ‘retro’ pay is going to kick in (maybe even with the demand for some interest tacked on) and Califailure is right back where they are now…… in a hole so deep, they’re looking up to see the Deepwater Horizon’s broken wellhead casing dumping all that oil into the Gulf.

You’ve got to read the whole article…… The obvious and instant generation of self-gratifying magnanimous snarkification and derision of all involved is truly a sight to behold.

Decades of mismanagement, corruption, political correctness and everything else combined from the state, the unions and all the rest, have now converged in one ‘swell foop’ on a pinpoint example of exactly how NOT to run a state.


Does anyone else hear that clacking ?

It sounds like we’re climbing to top of a really big hill on a roller coaster or something like that…… Weird……. It’s getting slower too……. Like a big coiled spring is winding tighter and tighter………..


Wow, I can see my house from here !
