State pensions drain taxpayers

August 31, 2008

The Sunday Business section gave a prime example of why the California budget is such a mess.

In the story "Teacher needs financial education" (Money Makeover, Aug. 24) was a line about the person being advised that as a state employee, she would get a pension of $6,880 a month at the age of 55.

Yikes! We taxpayers are on the hook for over $80,000 a year for someone who can retire at age 55. Let's hope they don't vote to increase the pensions or we'll really be in trouble.
