Are California state workers The Expendables? Jesse Russell reports:

He may now be the Governor of California, but Arnold Schwarzenegger was a Hollywood actor first. The Governor found time in the last year to film a walk on part in the new action film The Expendables opening this weekend. State workers, who have felt expendable under the Governor ever since he cut their pay by implementing furlough Fridays, are attempting to organize a boycott of the film. A mock poster for the film that has been making the rounds on the Internet includes a quote from gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman endorsing the film with two chins up. On Wednesday, Whitman told KFI 640 talk shows hosts that she would fire as many as 40,000 state workers if she wins the election in November.
