Description

This investigation started when the staff of the Free Press noticed several key public figures bringing in substantial pension checks. After sampling other local cities and counties, they were able to analyze pension calculations and noticed that many other government employees were enjoying the perks of early retirement and large pensions. This new-found wealth comes at the expense of large tax increases and potential burdens on future taxpayers.
