Robert Jones to underlings: CMS delayed, excuses included..

Acting Labor Commissioner Robert Jones needs to do only one thing half-ass, not two things. He should either be the DLSE Acting Labor Commissioner or the DLSE Chief Counsel. This way, only one area of DLSE is infected and not two. CMS won't jump-start on January 16th: good thing for Robert Jones that he won't be answering pesky Senate confirmation questions. Going through those Senate Confirmation process and having to explain those meal & rest period lawsuits, the torpedo job on Miles Locker, the 1st Ammendment attacks on the blogger, the failure to install safety glass for DLSE personnel in Santa Ana, and let us not forget the multi-million dollar fiasco called CMS would be frightening! Robert Jones needs to go back to the basics, like trying to accomplish little tasks like fixing tiny problems before escalating into big problems. He can't fix the big stuff; it's either too complicated or beyond his skills.
"Acting" Director John Rea: please simplify the tasks assigned to Acting Labor Commissioner Robert Jones. Start him on small, easy stuff that builds confidence (confidence can help psychologically [that means mentally]). Once he's demonstrated that he can succeed in the little tasks, then build on that success with more challenging tasks. It looks like he's been stumbling, so help pick him up. You can start by fixing CMS, but you're probably too busy (still) trying to convert DLSE Legal into OD-Legal...your very own tower of power.

Rea is Acting Director too just like Jones. The only way you can get promoted at DLSE is to kick a fuss about CMS. Case in point Lupe Ramirez she now has nothing negative to say about CMS. Everyone knows that CMS is junk but if you are in the line to be using it and do not kick a fuss, you are a fool. Promotion Lost.

Has anyone started to ask why are there so many delays? If this CMS was going to work, it would have by now!!!
