I spoke to the GBI SAC for my region this afternoon about a case and while we were discussing things he brought up that the GBI, the GSP, and a bunch of other Georgia alphabet agencies are now doing that jackass furlough thing. His guys can't get enough hours to make ends meet much less do their jobs.

Has this started in your state as well? If so, let's hear it.

None in AL so far. However, we are not getting any kind of raise or COLA this year and hardly any state agency is hiring. Hopefully it will not come to laying off at the state level.

that's tough to hear - being from GA originally, i hope it does not come to this.

The worst part is they are capping the GBI guys at 152 hours a month. They were getting 200+. They aren't even full time now.

Sorry. 152 a month. See where I said they aren't full time now? 152/4 = 38 hours a week.

At the S/O where I work 59 of 126 employees were laid off last year. They're still laid off and now the County is talking about 10 furlough days for each county employee next year and closing all county offices, except law enforcement/court 1 day a week.

On top of all this there's a projected shortfall in the 2010 budget that they say can't be made up for if the County auditor's office, recorder's office and treasurer's office are closed for the year and EVERYONE at these offices are laid off.
