Laid off, but on the job in Va.
Some laid-off Virginia State Police workers are staying on the job as volunteers, according to an Associated Press article:
More than a dozen of the 104 part-time employees laid off by the agency in early October are now working as volunteers.
Sheila White says she loves her job as an office manager at the Virginia State Police's headquarters in Chesterfield County, whether she's paid or not. She recently took a part-time job at a doctor's office to make ends meet.
Other volunteer workers include secretaries, administrators and warehouse workers. They're helping out at state police operations around the commonwealth.
State police Supt. Col. W. Steven Flaherty says the volunteers are helping his agency get through challenging fiscal times.
