Extending Summer For One More (Furlough) Day

Today is number 16. Another $700 of squandered revenue, plus now the mandatory time reporting doesn't recognize furloughs, so there will be added administrative costs as the County tries to explain the excessive furlough times.

The total hit to the tax payers is at least $11,200 on me alone. Multiply that by all the workers in the county effected by Walker's now augmented furlough days, making him more than three times worse than Doyle.

On another note, I'm thinking I may have to start claiming unemployment, since our savings is all but gone. I know several other people who have done so as well, which further puts the county behind in their budgeting. That's because when a government has to pay unemployment, they pay it on demand, as opposed to the insurance type of system that companies follow.

Oh well, if you don't like it, don't vote for Walker.
