The states blew all their $ on fucking Wall Street and/or mismanaged over the years and now they want to illegally break a contract. Now, every prick whose 401k took a dive suddenly think Joe the Garbageman and Bob the Teacher don't deserve their "ridiculous" pensions because they're pissed off now and it's "their" tax money. When in reality in most situations, the state/city workers got paid shit for doing actual work in exchange for a pension/benefits (a pension, BTW, that is more like a stipend in many cases). It was trade-off they made and now the state wants to fuck them. Hard. And without lube. I've quit two state jobs over the years and people looked at me like I was fucking crazy because of what I was (allegedly) giving up. My sanity was worth more than putting in 30 yrs. with the state for a pension (especially the offices I was in). Think of tomorrow but live for today.
Detroit is closing HALF of its schools and will have 66 fucking kids in a class. I subbed about 20 Boston 6th graders and it was a nightmare. I couldn't imagine 66 Detroit HS kids.
