Challenge Question -Need Your Help
Does anyone out there know why, or can guess why, Arnold won't LAYOFF/FIRE/LET GO (even temporarily) any state nonessential cubical Verkers.
I have thought it was weird that he will allow firefighters and police to be laid off
but won't layoff any of the porno searchin, farting, constant break takin, potluck coordinating, rude, highly paid, bored receptionists/customer service reps who work for the state.
Is it illegal? Does Arnold have family that works for the state? Is he being bribed or begged not to? what? why?
As a victim of layoffs in the past, I know that's exactly what a private sector company will do when business is bad... layoff nonessential workers.
I have been wondering about this since last March. Anyone?
*UPDATES- RESPONSES TO MY PLEA
1st one from Andrew McIntosh, writer for Sacramento Bee, states,
but my response to Mr McIntosh regarding that was-
"dont firefighters and police have union contracts too?"
I haven't received a response yet
I also got a reader opinion stating
"THE CYNICS WOULD SUGGEST THAT GOVMT CUTBACKS ALWAYS START WITH THE MOST ESSENTIAL AND VISIBLE WORKERS (police, firefighters, teachers), IN ORDER TO DUPE THE PUBLIC INTO ROLLING OVER FOR ADDITIONAL TAXES."
ah ha...that does make sense, but still doesnt answer my question, "why are the cubical workers still not layed off?"
