May 23, 2011Pensions
Ted Nesi of WPRI-TV (CBS 12) deserves a line-of-the-day credit for this Twitter entry…
On pensions, Raimondo says “Failure is not an option.” I’m pretty sure it is though, just not her preferred one.
Does anyone REALLY think the GA is going to meet in October and tell the 50 year old teachers and Council 94 members “F*** you, you’re working till 67”.
“you’re working till 67”
No one’s telling them that any more than social security does. All they’re saying is they can’t *collect* until they’re 67. They can retire any time they want. Teach for 20 years, “retire” and become a Walmart greeter for 20 years and then get your RI pension.
Gone will be the days of 43 year old retirees collecting a $50,000 pension working full time in MA.
