Los Angeles City Council voted Thursday to eliminate 4,000 municipal jobs

The council instructed “all departments and offices of the city, including elected offices, to expedite the elimination of 4,000 positions by any means necessary, including layoffs.” Under the council’s instruction, the positions must be identified within 45 days and scheduled for elimination as of July 1, the beginning of the next fiscal year.
Eliminating 4,000 positions does not necessarily mean 4,000 people will be put out on the street. Some workers may lose their current positions but be transferred to other departments and offices that do not draw salaries from the depleted general fund. SOURCE

Does this make any sense to anyone outside of California? Didn’t Obama say he had saved all these jobs?

  1. If it made sense it wouldn’t be California. This is where I live and these crooks are as bad as any Chicago politician. Did you see that article? “Mecha reconquista” Villaraigosa is begging unions to take a 5% cut, but demanding cops and firefighters take a 15% hit. Him and his pals are the ones that set the unions up to bankrupt the city in the first place. And taxes are on the way-guaranteed.

  2. How can this be true? Governor Schwarzenegger just said that the Obama stimulus created 150,000 jobs in California. Wonder what’s up?
