R.A.Danny: Dr Dreidel: GoldSpider: rcantley: Ohs noes, employees wanting to get what they're contractually guaranteed!

Contracts that make guarantees based on assumptions about future economic conditions should be considered legally unenforceable.

You'd probably have to specify that a bit.

A contract that says "I'll pay you $100 now and $200 when the work is done" assumes the "future economic condition" that I'll have $200 when the work is complete, and would therefore be unenforceable.

So we don't have to pay our credit card bills?


This "all debt is illegal and unenforceable" scenario is a good one. I like it.

MFAWG: under a mountain: So I guess the Union just expects the State to create the money out of thin air?

Oh wait they'll just raise taxes.

Honest question: shouldn't the state have been putting money aside for these pensions? It's not like the capitol building burned down. This is an obligation that they've had literally decades to prepare for.


Yabbut those unions FORCED governments to sign that paper that makes PAUPERS out of CITIZENS while FATCAT UNION LEADERS live the high life on yachts made out of children's tears.

Also, government workers shouldn't be allowed to unionize, because the right to petition a government for a redress of grievances was more of a suggestion really, and obviously doesn't apply when petitioners are only looking out for their own interests.

Rixel: timujin: Fubini: The pension for a pension?

The penchant for a pension?

The penchant of a passion for a pension?


A persistent penchant for a passion for punishing pensions.
