Zeno-25: It's amazing that people in NYC can be so concerned and resentful about civil servants and other government employees having a good wage and ample pensions for retirement. Remember those? Guess private sector workers should have fought harder to keep them. Just look around where you are. It's an elite playground for the global rich. You're swimming in money.
AlwaysRightBoy: Gulper Eel: God_Almighty_Himself: I'm saying that if a garbage man retiring on $75k is going to break the bank, the city has bigger financial problems. I understand, though, that some people abhor the idea of honest workers retiring with dignity.The Long Island Rail Road disability fraud scandal would like a word with you.And those were just the ones that were caught. Tip of the iceberg.
chevydeuce: So are you actually denying that public sector pensions are NOT an issue in the country right now (and for the last decade plus)? Are you denying that the scenario doesn't happen on large scales?
Dwight_Yeast: Well, if he doesn't do something, the rich and very rich are going to find themselves stuck in NYC with the poor in public housing, a few hundred crazy cat ladies in rent-controlled apartments, and no middle class to serve them or do their bidding.
