It would take 6 months to revamp California's payroll system

The governor would have to rehire semi-retired computer programmers he fired last week to change the payroll system so that it could handle lowering the salaries of 200,000 state workers to minimum wage, according to the Sacramento Bee. And it would take at least 6 months. College students today don't even bother with COBOL which is the computer language used in the current payroll program. They'd have to find retired computer people to do the overhaul... and quite frankly, maybe they wouldn't want to come out of retirement to help reduce the pay of 200,000 workers.
