The last paycheck for the foreseeable future for tens of thousands of state government employees is out, and it wasn't even a whole paycheck. ~ Video

Some 44,000 employees received a 20 percent paycheck Friday as a budget impasse since July 1 has stripped state government of the ability to pay bills and meet payroll.

About 1,000 employees of the judicial branch have gone unpaid since July 3, while legislative employees continue to be paid from reserve accounts.

Gov. Ed Rendell is among those missing a full paycheck. Legislators missed their June paychecks, although many are filing for per-diem payments while they're in Harrisburg.

Pennsylvania is one of three states whose budgets are still unresolved.


Rendell Pay Up!
