Schwarzenegger Drops State Employee Pay, Fires 22,000 Temps

Hosted by

The Department of Motor Vehicles has cut waiting times in half by hiring part-time workers. Today, Governor Schwarzenegger ordered those workers laid off. He also ordered that some 200,000 full-time salaried state workers be cut back to the federal minimum wage. As he did on this program last week, Controller John Chiang says he'll defy the Governor and send out checks as usual at the end of August.
