Economy strikes again

California’s Governor is now suing the California Controller. The Gov wants to furlough government employees for 2 days per month, unpaid! He says that will help the cash-strapped state. Funny how top paid folks always look to the lowest paid folks to carry the burden.  How about the auto industry flying to Washington to ask for money in corporate jets!  Or bank executives getting hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation buyouts … all the while asking/blaming the ones who least afford cuts to reduce their compensation.

Oh, and the latest! …. California is withholding payment to appointed attorneys in criminal defense matters … who, among lawyers, gets paid the least, and who, among lawyers, needs the cash flow the most? Appellate lawyers who take on appointments from the State … Wow! And it’s these folks who are now being stretched in receiving payment for services delivered.
