CA State payroll grows in recession...huh??
Original post made by Perspective, Midtown, on Mar 16, 2009
Ok, please explain to me why we should pay ever more taxes to grow our government? 2,000 MORE FT employees in a year when we were promised a shrinkage in our State Govt?
Of course, even before I got to that point in the article, I KNEW that someone in State would defend it as needing more State employees to deal with unemployment and homelessness etc..Right. So, when was the last time we actually LAID OFF these employees when the economy improves or unemployment goes down?
If you buy this premise, can you find me any evidence that we have ever shrunk govt in an economic upswing?
