In the middle of a recession, and even after a bitter, months long battle to eliminate a 40 billion dollar deficit with cuts, tax hikes and austerity measures, the jackass Governor of California and his enablers are still hiring people.
"..California state government's full-time work force continues to grow despite Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's order to freeze hiring amid a historic budget shortfall.
From June 2008 to February 2009, most state agencies either increased or kept the same number of full-time employees, according to a Bee analysis of personnel data. The state also failed to lay off as many part-time employees during the crisis as promised by the governor.
While legislators and Schwarzenegger debated how to close a $40 billion budget deficit, 66 state agencies saw a net gain of full-time employees, 35 kept the same number of employees and 55 lost employees, data from the state controller's office show."
Has anybody visited the DMV lately? I have. I'm not getting full-time service, only part-time attitude.
"..Proposition 1A is a blatant attempt to raise all Californians' taxes to support the continual overspending by Sacramento politicians.
Sacramento Politicians Wage War Against California Taxpayers!
Sacramento politicians just raised taxes on all Californians while 1 in 10 is unemployed, foreclosures are at record levels, and people and jobs are leaving the state.
These new taxes will cost the average California family over $1,100 per year.
That's right, higher sales taxes, higher income taxes and a higher car tax. If you have children, you have lost much of your tax credit for dependents."
