What I did on my summer vacation
I protested a partial government shut down with my mommy. You see, she is one of over 45,000 employees of the state of Minnesota and one of the 9,000 deemed "unessential" by a judge.
Did you know that the State of Minnesota is the is the largest employer in the state of Minnesota? It is.
In fact, there is approximately one employee for every 111 men, women and children in this state.
What a great place to live. My mom has a job for life, except when the legislature can't agree on a budget. Should it increase 8% or 10%? How about 15% with all of that going into mommy's paycheck?
Do you suppose my face will freeze like this?
