Also in the news: A pay cut for Ca. state workers?

The LA Times reports that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has drafted an order that would temporarily reduce the pay of approximately 200,000 state workers to the federal minimum wage of $6.55 an hour.

The pay cut would remain in place until the governor and the state legislature have agreed on a budget, at which point employees would receive the lost wages, according to the Times.
