The post regarding Furloughs vs. Overtime was only about California and
was not eluding to Wisconsin. I do not understand what is
happening there and that is why I had originally posted a question
about what is going on in Wisconsin. But very much I can
attest to the fact there is significant corruption in California and
the unions here are always trying to fight corrupt
politicians. Here, we are so happy for the unions otherwise
the guys would be furloughed to death. Even the school district
has furlough days where the kids don't have to come to school, they get
an extra holiday, but what is SO STUPID is they have "Saturday School"
so that the teachers can make up their time. Can't they
just not furlough people in California? I am so sick of
hearing on the news every single year the California State Senate has
not passed the budget and they are talking about how the state workers
will have to go to minimum wage until it is passed. And
then during that time the workers can go to a Federal Credit Union to
try to get a payroll loan for the variance of the payroll check that is
owed. And I think once I heard that the State of California
issued Warrants to their employees, so that it is really not a
check....you have to go to your bank and if the bank decides to cash
it, then the State owes the bank money. The banks are
OWNING the states now and I think it is a matter of time before they
get rid of the states. I went on an interview with a local Union
in Los Angeles and the CFO had been fired for embezzlement.
The accountant made a quick exit and quit unexpectedly.
Their office staff, including the payroll person interviewed me and
everywhere there were pictures of Obama and it reminded me of exactly
what they did with Hitler's picture. Then the City of
Bell in California, their City Manager decided to start giving himself
raises which was exorbitant. And the police chief and he
had correspondence laughing about it.
Then another guy who worked closely to the Mayor of Los Angeles, well
he found out there was some property that the Department of Water and
Power was eying for Obama's call for alternative energy so they could
put up lots of windmills. This guy bought the property
first and then tried or did sell the property back to the City of Los
Angeles for a profit. Isn't this really considered insider
trading? At least there is a group of unions suing
the state for the furloughs in California.
What I cannot understand is why do the Wisconsin senators who are
hiding out in Illinois getting paid? If you don't show up
to work without putting in your vacation time in most agencies, you get
reprimanded. Why isn't there a law that even though you are
an elected official, you must be in the office to work? One
guy at my husband's work did not call in and missed work and even
though he is union, he was not paid. He took the matter to
Human Resources, but he did not win.
