Denny, listen to yourself and think what it means to “reform state government.” It means that you are talking about giving the governor the blessing to cut jobs. With all that you said about jobs being lost and real income decreasing, our jobs are just as important as the private sector. When our agency talks about cost cutting, it means the GMWs (custodians) will not get the positions that were lost previously. Shame on you! Take your reform and cut the wages of the state workers making over $50,000 a year.
