I ran across this report the other day. I thought I’d share it as it outlines how two groups have gotten into the public employee pension scrum across the country and they are trying to undo all of the progress made in gaining decent pensions for all public employees. Don’t be foolish enough to charge the author with bias. All reporting is biased to a degree, including that by the foundations the author is taking to task. When in doubt, check the references at the end of the report to decide for yourself whether the bias is relevant or not. Here is the link to the foundation report.
Please don't post your comments more than once. I moderate all comments and a delay between posting and appearing is part of the drill here. I get to all comments in due time. Please don't continually repost the same comment. Only one will be posted. Also, due to the volume of email I'm getting right now, I am unable to guarantee that I will respond to all personal emails sent to my email address. I am being buried alive under an avalanche of email. Please go to the PERS Oregon Discussion (POD) Group, linked below (left) under LINKS to post your question and get a variety of answers. Thank you.
