Never in my wildest dream thought that California would reach the brink of bankruptcy. The legislators and the governor haven't agreed on how to solve the state's deficit. In the meantime, recession finally hit my family with a big blow. My mom received a third day of furlough last week, in short, a 15% pay cut for her. There's an impending pay cut for UC employees, that would include me, and one of my sisters will be laid off next week. Life sure can throw a curve ball when you least expect it!
