Mendocino County Closes For A Day

The Ukiah Daily Journal reports the county be giving all non- essential employees a mandatory unpaid day off on January 2. Looks like they're in the hole like nearly every one else and have to deal with an over $800,000 budget deficit.

Sounds like a good idea to me, although I suppose it would suck to be one of the workers deemed non- essential. How would that make you feel?

It will be interesting to see how this works.
Maybe we should try that in Humboldt. I suspect most of us wouldn't even notice the difference.

Seems like a decent idea, saving money and not affecting any one person too much.

at least it's the Friday after New Year's Day, so they'll have a nice long weekend...

I wonder if any of the folks in Tuolumne will notice?

Are any of the Board of Sups (BOS) or department heads giving up a days pay? Maybe if the BOS hadn't given themselves a 40% raise this past year, maybe the County wouldn't be quite this bad. The BOS must have know this would happen, why wait until the holidays to make the employees loose a days pay? I hear more un-paid days off are in the future!
