State workers called back to work Thursday morning

After signing the budget bills to end the state shutdown this morning. Gov. Mark Dayton said he expected state employees to return tomorrow.

It's official now. The state's "Be Ready" site just posted:

State Government will recall employees beginning at 6 a.m. on Thursday, July 21, 2011. All state employees should report to work at their normally scheduled time.
Lawmakers finished voting on the bills just before 4 a.m. this morning. Dayton signed them later in the morning.

AFSCME Council 5, Minnesota's largest public employee union, says state employees will be called back to the same job they held before the shutdown. "Employees will receive a written, oral or electronic recall notice. Once they receive that notice, they must report back to work within three working days of the recall date."

Let us not forget that it took the threat of running out of alcohol thoughout the state to end the shutdown. Did we learn anything from this?
