Anyone else out there work for their state government?

I'm a state employee. Is your state going to lay off people?

  • Me and my DH both are, I'm kind of freaking out! A vacation would be nice, but unpaid vacation....NOT!

  • I work for NC. I've heard that some people have already been laid off, usually satellite programs. My school system is absorbing layoffs right now via people retiring or vacant jobs, but that can only go so far. I'm expecting another round of fuloughs this year, which will be really hard. A long time ago, working for the state meant job security. Now I'd rather work in the private sector.
