"California budget crisis jeopardizes 20,000 jobs"

http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/02/17/california.budget.crisis/index.html?iref=mpstoryview

I know some people who work for the state, so this has me worried.

I hven't heard or know of anyone personally who got laid off yet.  I actually haven't heard of anyone.  Maybe now that the budget is passed, they won't do any lay offs.

My mom and brother both got furlughed though.  I did not because I work for an agency who has elected officials, so we are safe, for now anyways.

You're lucky, and I hope it keeps up. They're falling like 9 pins over here. Literally dozens of high-tech people I know are out of work, and 500 teachers are being laid off in the neighboring county to where my sister is trying to find a job-- so now she has 500 more people to compete with. I just had a long talk with a former boss who's out of work-- I think I know more people in telecommunications who are unemployed than are working at this point. It's all gone to India or the Philippines.

^^^I am so sorry to hear that.  That is suppossed to be that best thing about being a state worker is job security.  I don't know what I would do if I lost my job.  I mean I know my family wouldn't let me be on the streets and starve or anything, but its a scary thought.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A judge ruled on Thursday that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger can force tens of thousands of state workers to take days off without pay to help close a multibillion-dollar budget gap.
