The budget drama is not yet over! As July 1st approaches -- that's the new budget year for L.A. -- the process to let go of 761 workers began yesterday, according to the Daily Breeze. The first round will include 246 people, including employees from libraries to animal services and parks. If $53 million does not come in from leasing garages later this year, another 1,000 employees could also go to the wayside. Unions argue the layoffs won't save the city much as deferred wage hikes are coming down the line.
