The Bee has a couple of items you might want to check out in this morning's fiber / cyber edition. And we'll toss in a favorite flashback for TSW users who may have missed it.
Guest opinion writer Mark Drolette starts his piece with, "I'm Mark, and I'm a state worker." From there, he takes swipes at everything from Meg Whitman to Enron to stereotypes about state workers. Read "Run state like a business; kiss the good life goodbye" by clicking here.
Bee opinion writer Ginger Rutland writes about Marcia Fritz, public employee unions' "public enemy No. 1." Fritz is "the numbers cruncher behind the California Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility, an advocacy group that seeks to reform California's runaway public pension system." Click this link to read, "Pension watchdog barked early and often."
The Drolette column reminded us of a well-done opinion piece written by another state worker, Stacy Garrett. If you missed it, rewind to her Mar. 8 take on furloughs, "State pay cut: That belt tightening pinches," by clicking here.
