State Offices Still Closed Three Days a Month

Despite the budget deal reached by the Legislature and the governor, most state offices will remain closed for three days each month for the next year. According to the Chron, the closures and forced unpaid days off for state workers amount to a 15 percent pay cut for state employees. The cuts were necessary to help balance California’s $26.3 billion budget deficit. The closures also will result in longer lines at state offices, including the DMV.
