Editorial: ‘Shared Sacrifice’ Necessary To Fix Budget Gap
In California, "shared sacrifice is essential to plug a $26.6 billion hole in the state budget and balance budgets in local communities," a Fresno Bee editorial states. The editorial continues, "Union leaders of state and local employees must recognize that some benefits are simply unsustainable," adding, "Working with Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and the Legislature, labor leaders can show that collective bargaining will lead to reasonable compromises to help the state fix the budget."
