    It's easier to complain about how good the public sector workers have it instead of asking your boss why you don't have it so good, I guess.

    •  Sorry this is just spin (0+ / 0-)

      There is no reason why the public should be on the hook for providing some public sector workers 80 or 90% of their highest salary for life after only 20 or 30 years of service.

      I highly doubt that every employee could be given this guarantee because the economics of it just don't add up.

        I don't know about other states, but I certainly don't get 80-90% of high salary.  I get 66%.  And am now looking for another job (had to retire to take care of mother).
