Protesters Rally In San Francisco Against Brown’s Budget

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Advocates for the poor and disabled and elderly rallied on McAllister Street outside the state building against cuts in Governor Jerry Brown’s budget, released Monday.

The protesters said the cuts unfairly target health and human service programs.

Inside the building, state workers are worried about their pay, which would be reduced by eight to 10 percent under the governor’s plan.

KCBS’ Chris Filippi Reports:

“Thirty-one years and I do find it a bit frustrating,” one employee said.

Governor Brown said he wants state workers and unions without contract to accept $308 million in concessions.
