The state employee pay cut should happen to everyone that works for Washington state.
Being a state employee and having to endure the pay cuts starting in 2011, it is my belief that Gov. Chris Gregoire and all her legislative friends should take their fair share of pay cuts, too.
I’m sure they will find some loophole that excludes them from this financial mess that they put us in. If they do find that loophole, the ethical thing to do is when they get their paycheck is to write a check and put it right back into the state’s general fund and make it public how much they contributed.
I would love to see the numbers.
