As Thanksgiving approaches, even with 12% unemployment, crumbling city streets and schools with 51 kids to a class, Californians can find reasons to give thanks. But it's about to get even worse.
$2 billion in additional state budget cuts will be "triggered" in December. Working Californians -- who already subsidize corporations and the wealthy through an unfair tax code -- will bear the burden once again. The ax will fall on everything from public school budgets (California already ranks 47th in per pupil spending¹) to in-home health care for the elderly and infirm.
