California state workers get 11 paid holidays each year, compared to the 7 paid holidays that is common in the private sector. That is another way that taxpayers are getting the shaft by the state. Government workers now get higher salaries, on average, that private sector workers, even though their skill levels are substantially lower; and of course their retirement and benefits packages far, far exceed that of the private sector. Also, most government workers have assurance that they will never lose their jobs. When are voters in California going to wise up and vote in legislators and a governor that will put an end to squandering of taxpayers' money?

Gettin ripped, sounds like you have a crappy job and work for a bad company. Instead of blaming and being so jealous of those who work in government funded positions, go to school, and then maybe you too can work in one of those fabulous government jobs. I've worked for both. It's true that I was unlikely to lose my government job and the hours and days off were more predictable. However, I have made way more in private companies than I ever could have in a government lab. It's not even close. I enjoy the better pay and challenge of the private sector, but I work long hours at times so its not for everyone. I dont know what field you work in, but you are mis-informed. If you hate your job so much, get a better one.

I must be stupid or something. I don't recall this ever happening, but I guess it has? I thought we just did a single "President's Day".
