Submission + - California can't perform pay cut because of COBOL (sacbee.com) 4

beezzie writes: "Last week, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger ordered a pay cut for 200,000 state workers because a state budget hadn't been approved yet. The state controller, who has opposed the pay cut on principle and legal grounds, now says the pay cut (which would bump workers down to the federal minimum wage of $6.55/hr) isn't even feasible because the state's payroll systems are so antiquated. The system is based on COBOL, according to the Sacramento Bee, and the state hasn't yet found the funds or resources to upgrade it."
