Some Pension Crisis Solutions
The answer to the pension problem … is, if you hire more state workers …You would get more people paying into the pension system, and you won’t have any unfunded liability.
Yeah, I get it. More workers now to pay for current retirees. Then we just keep hiring more, every year, to pay for the increased future liabilities. And so on. Makes perfect sense.
Cynthia Volante, social worker, Department of Human Services:
It’s time our elected leaders began to hold the people who wrecked our economy accountable and demand from them they clean up the mess they created and stop coming after the people who serve the state. We [are] already paying more for property taxes, fuel, food and our children’s education. Enough is enough.
Question: What if “the people who wrecked our economy” are “our elected leaders”?
