It will be interesting to see what happens in the future between the politicians, the unions, and people like this letter writer. I'd like to see private sector employees fight for higher wages and more rights.
It's the same thing with schools nowadays. The charter schools treat their teachers like garbage. Morale could not get any lower than it was at the school I was at. Teachers often had good suggestions, but were afraid to bring them up. Those that did were labeled troublemakers and sent packing...
If pension is poor, then work elsewhere
There seems to be a lot of controversy over the passage of the Tier VI pension plan for “yet to be employees” to fill “yet to be open positions” in the future state work force.
For those concerned about “yet to be employees” having the future of their families stripped away from them, they should be reminded that this is still a free country, and they can spare themselves the agony of that future by choosing to work in the private sector. If the Tier VI plan is so inadequate that it fails to attract a work force, maybe the state can outsource the work and spare the taxpayers the burden of future pension liabilities.Al Grabowski
