Outdated IT blocks California payroll order

Posted Jul 07 2010 8:05pm
Outdated technology has blocked an effort by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to reduce most state workers' salaries to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour because lawmakers failed to meet a deadline to come up with a remedy for California's $19 billion budget deficit. However, state controller John Chiang said he can't comply with the ruling because the computerized payment system, which was designed in the 1960s, can't support the change without a major overhaul that won't be ready until October 2012.
