Va. workers get Friday furlough

By Washington Post editors

Most Virginia state workers are getting a four-day holiday weekend under a budget-cutting move ordered by former Gov. Timothy Kaine.

Thousands of employees will take an unpaid day off Friday, returning to work on Tuesday after the Memorial Day holiday. Kaine ordered the move last September as part of $1.35 billion in cuts.

The unpaid day off won't apply to critical personnel such as police and emergency crews.
