This is the first in a series of posts looking back at the most-read State Worker blog posts and columns.
Turmoil dominated California's state employee labor news this year, and it's reflected in the State Worker blog posts that received the most hits in 2010.
On June 23, we passed along a Department of Personnel Administration memo that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was sticking with his plan to end furloughs at the end of the 2009-2010 fiscal year, but "retains the right and authority to order furloughs if necessary to address a fiscal and cash crisis."
We also reported that the governor was ready to tell Controller John Chiang to withhold state employee's pay to the federal minimum allowed if lawmakers didn't reach a budget by the June 30 fiscal year-end.
