Gov. Employee Unions Beaten
In one of the rare instances of government employee unions taking a beating on an issue, Orange County elects a supervisor the unions hated. The issue: Public employee pensions.
Of interest, for those who claim unions don't contribute much to campaigns, is the following excerpt:
Now he believes that retirement benefits are a looming crisis, in Orange County and for local governments across California. His focus on the issue made him the No. 1 target of the public employees unions in the June 6 election. They spent more than a quarter-million dollars trying to defeat him.
I'm still wondering how well funded the pension funds of our local government employees are?
