Your Call 072808 The California Budget Standoff

What's going on with the California budget? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the state's budget stalemate. Governor Schwarzenegger wants to sign an executive order to lower 200,000 state workers to minimum wage until the budget is passed. But the state controller has described the governor's plan as "an untenable burden on state workers." Who is going to be impacted? And what does it take for the state to pass its budget? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
