whine, whine, snivel, whine
starting 1NOV09, the state is going to take out 10% more taxes. oh, they haven't raised taxes. oh no, they wouldn't do that in this climate of joblessness and economic downturn. they wouldn't raise taxes. this is just a way to get more money into the state faster, but they promise to pay it back at tax return time. yeah, like last year, they paid back with vouchers to many. top that with my furlough (yeah, i'm a tax eater, i work for a state funded organization), this looks like i'm taking an 18% paycut. add that to the fact that our workload is increasing, but they can't afford to hire any new full time employees, and it looks to be shaping up to one hell of a year.
