As the L.A. City Council tried to save 1,000 jobs by planning to spend 30 days to find alternatives, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa put his foot down and said now is the time, citing that everyday without a solvent budget means four more threatened jobs. The list includes 60 sworn firefighters, 15 custodians, 15 IT systems analysts, 26 tree surgeon assistants (and 16 of their supervisors), 60 library messenger clerks, 20 librarians and 59 child care associates, to name a few. You can see the whole list here (.pdf), which was posted by CityWatchLA. The Mayor is scheduled to testify about the budget cuts and other measures at today's City Council meeting at 11:15 a.m.
