Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 554 -- California Keeps Digging.

When You're In A Hole, STOP DIGGING-

Even as California grapples with its 40+ BILLION dollar budget deficit, the number of government employees just keeps going up:

California state government's full-time work force continues to grow despite Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's order to freeze hiring amid a historic budget shortfall.

From June 2008 to February 2009, most state agencies either increased or kept the same number of full-time employees, according to a Bee analysis of personnel data. The state also failed to lay off as many part-time employees during the crisis as promised by the governor.

While legislators and Schwarzenegger debated how to close a $40 billion budget deficit, 66 state agencies saw a net gain of full-time employees, 35 kept the same number of employees and 55 lost employees, data from the state controller's office show.

California, you really need to get a handle on your spending... you helped bring down the national economy. Now it's your responsibility to restore your fiscal balance sheet so the rest of us aren't paying for your problems.

When you are in a hole, Stop digging!!! I love that saying. I have to tell you it works and applies to many aspects of life. I only wish people would use common sense and take responsibility for their own actions and not rely on the Govt to bail out and reward bad decisions.
