Just in the Nick of Time
As some may know, I'm leaving my current job at the end of the month and moving 400 miles south. It looks like this might be happening at just the right time. As I work at a UC I am a state employee, and since our lovely state is Fuxored and has no budget in place drastic measures may be taken. Here is a snippet of an e-mail I got yesterday outlining what may happen:

"...in August or September, if the State still does not have a budget, his office will begin implementing a recent court decision that said State employees may only be paid the minimum wage while there is no budget. While it is unclear at the moment whether or how the University would be impacted by this court ruling, UC employees should be aware that they may potentially be subject to it.  This means that, later this summer, salary payments for UC employees could be temporarily reduced until there is a state budget"

I don't actually think it will come to this as Davis would have to WANT to be recalled if he doesn't get the budget in place and SOON, but it is still a scary indicator of just how badly he fucked things up.
