This Came In Friday

From the union:

In the event a state budget is not in place by June 30, the California Superior Court has granted the governor the authority to impose federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. The pay reduction, if ordered by the governor, would be reflected in the Aug. 1 paycheck for most state employees. The appeal of this ruling will be heard on June 21, in the 3rd District Court of Appeal.

Lots of swearing has passed through my head, and will continue to pass through my head.

So all civil servants will be on minimum wage?!?!?!

And how exactly are people gonna eat?

Well, most of them. Some don't fall under the executive branch and they'll probably get full pay.

Ironically, they'll eat by going on unemployment.

I live in, and work for, a state that's really, really stupid.
