City of Los Angeles v. Superior Court (Cal. Ct. App. - March 25, 2011)

Some people lately like to talk about how government employees are overpaid (at least when pensions and benefits are taken into account) and allegedly have "cushy" jobs.

But without taking a position on that debate, do you know any other job where your employer is permitted to breach (1) his contract with you, and (2) an express a collective bargaining agreement, and not pay you (as well as thousands of other employees like you) despite these employment promises?

That's the fate of government employees.
