Today should be the day we learn what lies ahead for state government – massive layoffs or employee furloughs. It’s decision time on a proposal that could save 750 state jobs in return for unpaid days off. If there is a shred of common sense among the 12,000 members of the State Employees Association, it should be apparent in a “yes” vote.
Any other outcome will be bad for the state employees and its citizens at large. While furloughs will no doubt affect state services, the loss of so many state workers would have a far more devastating effect.
