Re "Brown cuts deal with lawyers and scientists": The lawyers and scientists that work for the California taxpayers complain that they are underpaid. Fine, then let them do what everyone in the Non-State Unions do, and that is to find a better paying job at at different company.
It is time to let those supposedly underpaid individuals market their skills elsewhere. The real labor market pays for ability, not longevity or State Workers Union membership.
