State workers face bleak budget picture

Link to October 3 post.

While many state employees will escape layoffs, some will see smaller paychecks because their hours are being cut. Officials at Georgia’s transportation department and in the New Hampshire judicial system are considering forcing staff to take unpaid furloughs, while furloughs have already been announced at the Illinois secretary of state’s office, the comptroller’s office, and at Georgia’s Department of Family and Children’s Services. Last month Georgia Department of Insurance and Fire Safety employees began taking one day off each month.
