Default California Gov. Brown Calls for Sweeping Pension Cuts

California Gov. Brown Calls for Sweeping Pension Cuts

Quote:
Gov. Jerry Brown unveiled details of his pension proposal Thursday that seeks to move new California state workers to a hybrid system where guaranteed benefits are combined with a 401(k)-style plan and would raise the retirement age from 55 to 67 for civil workers, as union leaders lined up to oppose his plans.

The Democratic governor's plan calls for trimming generous public employee pension benefits that have saddled California and local governments with billions of dollars in unfunded liabilities. He is asking the Legislature to put a measure on a statewide ballot so the changes would impact both state and local government employees.
Smart move by Brown...

Now will we see Wisconsin-like protests at the capitol?...

Will we see posters of Brown with a Hitler mustache?...

Will we see union thugs and teachers screaming at the top of their lungs?...

Of course not...Brown has the correct letter at the end of his name, so they are "just" displeased and peacefully disagree...

Quote:
Dave Low, chairman of Californians for Retirement Security, said the governor's proposed changes would undermine retirement security for public employees who have already agreed to "hundreds of millions of dollars in pension concessions at the state and local level."

"Workers across California have negotiated contributing more to their pensions and two-tier benefits," Low said in a written statement. "We simply cannot stand for imposing additional retirement rollbacks on millions of workers without bargaining."
Notice he didn't say how the governor wants to kill grandma...Having a "(D)" has SUCH a flair for quieting the pitchforks and torches...

Or we may hear union members upset over the loss of their pensions. Some of them aren't thugs.
