Your humble blogger will host a live online discussion at noon today on Bee Live. Bee editors titled the event, "The State Worker blog author Jon Ortiz hosts: Furloughs for California state workers," but we're not restricted to chatting about Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's furlough policy.
We'll probably kick off the session with some unpublished info and observations from Wednesday's Supreme Court furlough litigation hearing, but we can talk about other topics: state labor talks, the budget and its impact on the state work force, the November election, the state of minimum wage litigation and other state employee issues that we've covered over the last two years.
We hope that the chat will be a chance to field questions and take a sounding about this blog and its companion Thursday column, too.
Look forward to "seeing" you at noon today.
