Why can't we just have a pension system that pays people a living wage regardless of whether it is actuarially sound ? I mean it....A "free s---" pension system with no requirements for employee contributions and the ability to game the system for outrageous benefits upon retirement at age 55.
Why can't we have something for nothing ? The nerve of this Governor to propose a 65 year old retirement and 6% contributions, with restrictions on jacking final year earnings. If I wanted to pay for my retirement, I would work in the private sector.
This plan won't pass and is likely just a starting point for negotiations....Oh, and by the way, can we nix the planned layoffs in July ? People might start to believe we are spending too much...when in fact we can never spend enough to suit me.
