And it gets wrinkled.
Like a California raisin wrinkled.
The discomfort of laying in a wrinkled bed seems to be wrankling the wanks…errr…ranks of the Service Employees International Union Local 1000 (SEIU) in California, who are claiming 74% of their 95,000 state workers have authorized a strike against the California state government.
The group’s labor contract with the state expired last year, SEIU spokesman Jim Zamora said. The union negotiated a new deal with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s administration in February, but the contract has not been ratified by the state Legislature.
Earlier this week, the Republican governor signed a bill that closed a more than $24 billion budget gap. Under the legislation, furloughs will continue for state workers for three days a month, cutting their pay by 15 percent.
“We feel that he (Schwarzenegger) really undermined any kind of a contract deal by pushing these furloughs on folks,” Zamora said.
Ya don’t think their insatiable salary demands have anything at all to do with the fact California’s broke, do you? On behalf of so many Americans working in the private sector who have had their employers cutting everyone’s pay in order to keep more people employed, welcome to reality, kids.
Be grateful you still have a job.
