Anecdotal Evidence of An Unintended Furlough Consequence
A friend visited the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento on Friday December 4 to have some blood work done. He encountered a large line of other persons waiting to have blood drawn.
He said many of them were state workers who, now furloughed three of every four Fridays each month, use those vacant days to dispense with non-work related errands of which getting blood tests is apparently one.
However, these state workers and the others in line experienced a double furlough whammy – the medical center furloughed a goodly chunk of their phlebotomists as well, making the already lengthy wait even lengthier.
