Last marked beginning of forced unpaid leave for California state workers.


From M& C Business News

San Francisco – More than 200,000 state workers were forced to take unpaid leave Friday, in a bid by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to preserve the state’s rapidly dwindling cash reserves.

Schwarzenegger’s order requires the state employees to take two Fridays off without pay every month, a move that is designed to save some 1.4 billion dollars through June 2010, the end of the next fiscal year.
