Can you believe the arrogance of this guy?

“The problem is the middle management of the state is about as corrupt as you can be." LePage offered no proof of corruption, no data to back his case that these managers don’t work and he didn’t identify a specific department. He did go on to talk about how most of these employees are not appointed by him and are protected through union contracts.

“I don’t want them (state workers) to go look for work,” he said. “We need them. They’re trained and they’re important to us.”

Basically he (LePage) says the order gives the Governor more authority to layoff state workers, without having to go through some of the usual steps required by the union contract. It also allows him to have some other authority and potentially sidestep some state regulations.

BTW...all of these state workers will be receiving back-pay once the Federal government reopens, that is of course, if LePage doesn't lay them off.

I believe the State of Maine should front the money until then, and save the expense of all of the unemployment compensation claims.

If anyone believes this "civil emergency" proclamation is anything but an attempt to, at the very least, harass the union, then you were born yesterday.

"LePage said the civil emergency allows him to suspend state laws and regulations"

SJ Link


So now, LePage can totally ignore all union contracts and labor regulations.  

How wonderful
