UPDATE: Binding Arbitration Passes the Full Senate

The binding arbitration bill has already passed the full Senate, 20-17.
UPDATE:
According to the information of the General Assembly website, Senator Frank Lombardo voted for binding arbitration in committee, in a 5-3 vote for passage, but against the measure on the floor. With the ex-officio votes available (Senators Paiva-Weed, Ruggerio and Algiere can vote in all committees), Senator Lombardo’s vote didn’t necessarily impact the outcome, but if he is unable to provide a good explanation for why he flip-flopped in the span of several hours, he should from now on be dubbed “The Johnston Joker”.

and there was thunderous applause.
Imagine having such a terrible workplace that an employer who can’t afford you still has to keep you around and keep paying you, even without a contract, and you keep getting to do the job you love.
