    Default What the state of michigan is doing now!

    The state held an on line meeting yesterday for 30k plus employees and notified them that they will be only working 4 day weeks for the next 10 weeks and the kicker is this, THEY WILL GET THE FULL $600 A WEEK ON TOP OF THEIR PAYCHECKS!
    My friends wife does accounting for the state, has been working from home and was in on the meeting!
    State will "save money" is their logic
    I am so wound up right now

    LOL - Are they determined to be under some sort of financial hardship going to 4 days a week, thus qualifying for the Federal $600/week? If so, yeah, the state “saves” paying their employees 20% so they can grab $600 from the feds. LOL

    I would really like to know how that works if someone has more info.....

    State announced this on Wed, but press release does not list the federal $ amount. Basically, they are furloughing workers one or more days a week, but using the federal cares act $ to pay the employees for those days, so the workers get a paid day off each week. Oh, and it's a Monday that they get off from the staff I've heard from. So... State takes Fed money, gives State employees paid three day weekend, less work is done by government, so the taxpayers lose out twice as much. 2x = (1) taxes to Fed being used to pay for day off/week to state employee; (2) Taxes paid to State for 5 days of services, now providing 4 days of service.
