Notoriously Lazy Mayor Calls for 3-Day Work Week

3897706-thumb-200x211.jpgHere’s all you need to know about the City’s budget crisis:

We’re broke. The 15 members of the City Council each make more than US Senators $178,789 plus ample perks. And we still don’t tax weed.

Our City is dysfunctional on a successful day and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa bucking all our snickering about how uninterested he is in working has suggested a three day work week for non-public safety employees to save money.

Well according to Gene Maddaus at LA Weekly, the mayor doesn’t have the authority to furlough workers. So…maybe he’ll just lead by example and all city workers can go campaign for their buddies instead of focusing on their current position. The mayor suggests you work less. He’s a great leader for that.
