Having been unemployed for a while, I have to wonder what it means when the employment division itself has to shut down temporarily.

First rule of budget cuts: Only cut what is visible to the public and likely to incite panic amongst the voters.

Or, rather than panic, to increase support. It works. Just recently there is the story of the Philadelphia libraries.



Quote:
The Free Library of Philadelphia announced earlier this month that unless the State Legislature approves the city’s budgetary requests, all branch, regional, and central libraries will close their doors and suspend programming effective Friday, October 2.




Quote:
We are thrilled to announce that the Pennsylvania State Senate passed bill 1828 by a vote of 32 to 17. For all of you who have been following the saga over the city's budget crisis, this is the legislation that was needed for the City of Philadelphia to avoid the "Doomsday" Plan C budget scenario, which would have resulted in the layoff of 3,000 city employees and forced the closing of all libraries.

See, I'd have thought voting for the Doomsday Plan would have instilled confidence in my constituents.

But then I'm no politician.

Totally agree that this is why high levels of panic is desired.
