Hundreds of both current and former state workers are going to get back the furlough pay they lost. 1,500 people will get several million dollars. Those covered are or were employed by the California Lottery, the First 5 Commission, Prison Industries, the Earthquake Authority and the Housing Finance Agency. PIA has already calculated they will have to kick down not quite $8 million.
The unions representing these groups recently settled their furlough lawsuits for back pay without interest for the period between 2009 and 2011. These agencies are all special funds agencies rather than general fund agencies, like CDCr.
