Statement of Chairman John Burton on Gov. Schwarzenegger's Order To Reduce State Workers' Pay Beginning in July to Below California Minimum Wage

"Governor Schwarzenegger is blaming state workers for the fact that the legislature needs a 2/3 majority vote to take a bathroom break much less pass a budget. This is an egregious act that will only serve to take food out of the mouths of working families and make it harder for them to keep up with the rent or pay the mortgage. The governor’s time would be much better spent convincing members of his own party to come to the table with realistic solutions instead of holding the budget hostage to their dogmatic whims."
