Unscrambling The Impact Of Prop B

I'm in the private sector, but I feel more secure than city employees. Unfortunately, many non-city workers truly believe that all retired city employees are overpaid. Their salaries are always blown up to the public; however, these are false figures. It's the politicians and highly paid Managers that receive a substantial cushioned retirement pension. The typical city employee average out at $30 - 50,000 a year, depending on the position, retirement age and if they completed at least 25-35 years of service. The city is extremely corrupted. Their classified employees have not had a cost-of-living increase in over 6 years, but the politicians and unrepresented/unclassified employees continue to receive raises. However, these politicians want to take from the real working class. The plan is to eliminate retirement for future generations. 401k and 401a won't cut it alone, and they know this, but don't care. The plan is to minimize the number of city employees, limit hiring and use contractors; a plan Demaio openly expressed. Prop. B shouldn't even be on a ballot. It's immoral.
