Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has been cleared to furlough California state workers. There has been little help for the Governor in the ongoing CA spending budget crises. CA has had several consecutive years of a spending budget shortfall. Schwarzenegger had to turn to a furlough of state workers, but was sued to keep him from doing this. The Supreme Court of California ruled in the governor's favor. He can be enacting further furloughs.

Well, of course !! IF WE, the employers, are struggling on reduced pay, because WE are on furlouighs, it's only logical they can live by the same rules. THEY are NOT ROYALTY, regardless if THEY THINK they are. YES, it may be rough....get over it, deal with it ! That's life....OUR lives !

In recent years, power has concentrated in a new 'political' class. Now they are trying to also make it a 'protected' class.
We better wake up and pay attention...and not forget, WE are the EMPLOYER !

Oh, but how many people in this community don't think its a "real" pay cut when it comes to the teachers of Pleasanton. For "Of course!" its a hardship, but for the teachers who CHOSE to do this to increase revenue in PUSD by $4.5 million, its not real! This time of hoping others will feel the pain as much as you do has got to end!
