Not true! I have been employed by the State of California for several years in Sacramento - I have seen significant layoff's when workload reduced at Division of the State Architect, Caltrans [I got layed off myself there], Energy Commission, and Dept of Water Resources. I happens all the time!

Who built the interstate highway system? :-) > _______________________________________________________________________ Anyone can build the interstate highway system with taxpayer's money, private or public. The point is that can we do it better with the same amount of money and people. Competition, incentives, layoff, marketing, etc. are the key elements that keep the economy going, not expansion of state monopoly. We all know that there are good, highly qualified engineers in the public sector. But how many times has one heard of layoffs in the public sector in period of hard time, always never, instead, taxes will be raised, budget deficit will rise. All these dreams will never happen in the private sector. May be Caltran is an exception, since the traffic flow and gasoline consumption are always increasing( so is the tax money), rarely affected by the state of economy. Wouldn't that be nice if I can be assure of constant client and job inflow to my company?
