The California state workers union SEIU local #1000 has authorized job actions up to and including strikes to protest the fact that their lazy, spoiled asses have to take unpaid furloughs because their bought and paid for patrons the Democrats in the legislature have screwed up the state's fiscal health beyond all repair. Story here. For those of you who aren't up to speed on the way things work here in the Golden State, let me school ya'. It's really quite simple. A California state worker can never be fired, laid off, have his pay reduced or lose any benefit of any kind. Don't believe me? It's in The Bible...you can look it up.
