Sad news, California state employees. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has asked his administration to "send 5,000 layoff notices to state workers Friday," according to an unnamed source close to Arnold's budget plan. The workers, according to (which is one publication we will truly be sad to see go if things are going the way they are in the print world), "will be among the 20,000 state workers who received layoff warnings earlier this year." Said 5,000 employees will have to have their desks cleaned out by the end of June. Also, for even more depressing news, be sure to check out live coverage of today's California budget crisis. (Pst, better get on the "California, the Weed Dealer State" thing right-quick, governor.)
