We've been invited to join a discussion about the politics of public employee pay on "Air Talk" with host Larry Mantle this morning from 10 to 10:30. As we understand it, we'll be a third party in a roundtable with two other guests who will take opposing points of view on the topic.
"Air Talk" is produced by and broadcast on Southern California Public Radio stations KPCC (FM 89.3), KUOR (FM 89.1), KPCV (FM 90.3) and streamed online here. You can catch the archived broadcast here, if you miss the live show.
The radio station reached out to us because of today's column by our Capitol Bureau colleague, Dan Walters, that looks at some data we ran about the number of state and local government workers in California and elsewhere.
