Governor puts 200,000 state workers on minimum wage
This is unbelievable!

For a state which spend more on their illegals then they do for their state employees...
Someone(s) should be fired... in November... or impeached


Roughly 200,000 state workers will receive minimum wage paychecks next month under terms of an order issued Thursday by the Schwarzenegger administration.

I am glad to hear this. It is about time that these state workers feel what it is like to not be above the people they are there to serve. We do have an illegal problem and I agree with that. I am not sure how to fix this situation but I do think government employees are overpaid.

So all this time and he's managed to do two things I approve of:
lower pay for state employees
repeal the car tax that he inherited from Davis

too bad, too little, too late

Well, I have worked for a state, as a state employee and I think if you worked with these people you'd understand that is all and more than what they are deserving of. They are the fattest, laziest, most un ambitous (WORD?) not to mention crooked people on the face of the Earth and not only that more of them are on social programs then at any other career!!! NJ should do this!!!!!

The administration insists the order is a matter of law and not politics, but it puts more pressure on the remaining six unions that haven't agreed to the pension and pay concessions Schwarzenegger wants in exchange for an exclusion from minimum wage.

"Regrettably, we must take the steps outlined in the attached pay letter to adjust wages and salaries during this budget impasse," Personnel Administration Director Debbie Endsley said in a letter accompanying the pay withholding instructions.
...

Schwarzenegger is invoking a 2003 state Supreme Court decision as grounds for the order. The ruling in White v. Davis held that without a state budget with money appropriated for payroll, wages can be withheld to the federal minimum. Back pay would be issued once a budget is enacted.

I agree with that sentiment with these clarifications: Arnold's final term is due to expire in 2011 so is not eligible for re-election anyway; all the lawmakers in the state, assemblymen and senate alike need booted.

hate to break this to u but "impeaching"arnold would be a huge waste of time as hes done with his term limits so hes gone either way this is just a politician doing the right thing beacause he has nothing to fear from "the voters" i just hope this applies to cops and all state employees
