Public vs. Private Employees on the Pension Crisis: Nobody Wants Responsibility
Reason.comLink to more items from this source
Feb. 9, 2015
[Yesterday's newsletter contained a link to the press release; here is a lengthier article.] "[P]rivate sector workers -- who largely fund government workers' defined benefit pensions -- strongly favor shifting current employees to 401k style accounts by a margin of 65 to 31 percent. However, public employees oppose 52 to 46 percent. Nevertheless, a slim majority of government workers would favor such a reform if it only applied to future government workers, and not themselves (54 percent favor to 43 percent oppose).... [G]overnment workers remain opposed to 401k-style accounts even if that means taxes would have to be raised on everyone else or government would have to cut services."
