Spoiled and lazy California state workers don't like layoffs

California state workers outraged at possible layoffs

Poor babies.
State workers were outraged and anxious on Tuesday after learning that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to lay off 5,000 of them in the coming weeks.
Lately there have been a lot of layoffs in the private sector in California because of the recession, so why should it be any different for state workers? Why should they be considered some sort of privileged class that is not subject to the vagaries of the job market just like everyone else is? After all, state workers are no better than anyone else, although I think that a lot of them believe that they are.

Of course their salaries are being picked up by taxpayers. So therefore state workers work for you and me. We are their bosses. So why should they have it better than we do? It should be the other way around. They should be the first to be laid off, not the last. This is especially true since the average state worker is a lazy piece of shit that sits around in his or her office doing hardly a damn thing and that is when they even show up for work at all. I used to have a neighbor who worked for the state and it seems like every time I turned around she was off work for some reason. And why should they get more paid holidays than other workers get? It's ridiculous and it's got to change.

So I repeat, lay more of them off. Then make the ones who are left put in a decent day's work for their pay and then we wouldn't need as many of them in the first place.

It seems that they are almost always building another big state office building in downtown Sacramento. What do they need all of those buildings for? What do all of those people in those offices do besides sit around? If they want to cut the state's budget to save money, they should sell of some of those buildings. We don't need all of those.

And then when you do need to use a state service such as going to the DMV to renew your driver's license you have to stand in a long line forever because they have only one or two windows open, yet you can see a whole bunch of other workers sitting at desks behind the counter who aren't doing a thing. Why can't some of them get off their lazy asses and open another window to speed along the line? Well, the answer is that those lazy SOB's don't care about anything else but themselves. If it were up to me I'd fire the whole lot of them.

I remember one time I had been in line for a very long time at the DMV, and then when I finally got to the head of the line I had to wait even longer while the woman at the window got out a mirror and combed her hair. What in the hell is going on here anyway? If these people had been working in the private sector they would have been fired a long time ago.

Yet they are mad because a few of them might be laid off. Go figure.

I'm a state worker and you're right a lot of the people I work with are lazy, stupid and think they should get paid for breathing. I came to state service from private industry and after 17 years I still can't get used to how the state wastes money, how lousy the management is, and how so many state workers don't give a damn about earning their pay. It's disgusting.

Thanks friend. I'm glad someone agrees with me on this.
