State workers in California had only been furlough-free for a month before Governor Schwarzenegger issued a new executive order on Wednesday to implement three furlough days per month. It will affect an estimated 200,000 state workers.
SEIU Local 1000 President Yvonne Walker responded to the new furlough order, calling it another example of his failed leadership:
"He is unable to provide the leadership necessary to work out a compromise solution to the state's budget crisis."
