“Let’s Get To Work” – NOT

Meet Governor Rick Scott 
Florida Govenor Rick Scott
WHY IS THIS MAN SMILING?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Pink slips are going out to more than 1,600 state workers in the next two days (by Friday), a grim reminder of the human toll of the austere spending plan approved by lawmakers and Gov. Rick Scott this spring. They join the ranks of tens of thousands of teachers, first responders and others who served the most needy of our state’s citizens.

The Department of Children and Families and the Department of Juvenile Justice will suffer most of the staff cuts. DCF is laying off 679 employees and DJJ is trimming 706.
