Yesterday the Governor of CA sent me a E-mail. In it he outlined his proposal to have state workers take off 19 days without pay, the loss of OT on holidays, and the take away of 2 holidays. What is a concern for non-state employees is who is exempt from this. The CHP!!! There is only one reason for a Governor of CA to exclude the CHP from cuts and that is to assure their loyalty. They are the only police/military agency that is under the direct command of the Governors office. Remember that in the 60s then Governor Ronald Reagan used the CHP to restore order during the anti-war/anti-government protests that became riots. When you read between the lines of this proposed cut package the situation is alarming. This is one more indicator that even our Governments are preparing for SHTF.
