On a related note- My Dept just had I think 15 or 16 guys graduate from the Plymouth Academy. In fact the graduation is tomorrow in Bridgewater I think.

The city met with these almost graduates this week and told them that there was no money but they weren't being laid off- they were being "furloughed" or on "recess" until on or after 06 July.

They came to the station today to pick up their badges and sidearms to wear to the graduation tomorrow, but they have to return them after the ceremony.

None of them are going to be sworn until after 06 July, so they can't work details. Obviously not being paid for a month and I assume no medical coverage. They can't collect unemployment because they aren't "laid off", merely at recess.

What's everyone think? legal? ethical? Does anyone but me have a problem with this? BTW I'm not one of the graduates. I'm just an old guy who hates to see new guys get screwed 'cause they may not now any better.
