It’s another hit that Jefferson City’s workforce can’t stand. 200 Missouri state government employees (a fair share of them most likely fromMid – Missouri) will get their walking papers in the next few days. It’s all part of the Governor’s line – item vetoes designed to bring the state budget into line.
I guess it’s not bad enough that Missouri state government workers rank 50th for the worst public sector pay in the U-S. Now Jefferson City businesses will also have to contend with more of their potential customers lining up for unemployment checks.
It could make it even tougher to sell houses, cars and even hamburgers.
