    U.S. threatens to rescind stimulus money over wage cuts

    The Obama administration threatens to rescind billions in stimulus money if Gov. Schwarzenegger and lawmakers do not restore wage cuts to unionized home healthcare workers.

    By Evan Halper

    Reporting from Sacramento -- The Obama administration is threatening to rescind billions of dollars in federal stimulus money if Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state lawmakers do not restore wage cuts to unionized home healthcare workers approved in February as part of the budget.

    Schwarzenegger's office was advised this week by federal health officials that the wage reduction, which will save California $74 million, violates provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Failure to revoke the scheduled wage cut before it takes effect July 1 could cost California $6.8 billion in stimulus money, according to state officials.

    How many of you are willing to work for the wages, union or otherwise, that home health care workers make?

    It doesn't matter if they only make 10 cents and hour. This is not the way to handle it.

    I have worked at construction labor in the 40's for a pittance. I have worked at jobs that paid well. It is my belief that when a person takes a job, regardless of wages, they are obligated to do their best. If I were a home health care worker I would be the best I could.

    Oh, is this another one of those jobs that Americans won't do?

    Perhaps they should just bring in some more illegal aliens.

    It is California after all.

    Just what we need; home health workers who can't speak English.

    The State has the right to lower the wages if necessary. The 0 and his cabal of socialistas have no right to interfere with the Government of CA or any other state in this manner. I fear this is just a forerunner of more of the same to come.:tear:

    Some states are passing laws against this type of interference; trying to reinstitute the 10th amendment.
