They should go find the board members that promised them the pensions and get their money from them.

Start with Barbara Klein who was president at the time that the behind closed doors deal was struck for retiree healthcare. That is one of the main causes of the UCSD's current financial dilemma.

Do a search of the OD site for articles about how and what was done in that negotiation. How all info was kept from the taxpayers until the package was signed, sealed and delivered to the union. After reading all of that you can make your own decision about who the Board of Education was working for.

The name for yourself is spot on,these people that teach EDUCATE YOUR KIDS so yes we should compensate them and besides go get a masters degree because that is the level of education you need to get and retain a teaching license and besides there is alot of other things that can be reduced and addressed like the our governments pay and healthcare one four year term and they get a pension 100% of the salary they made and free healthcare for life 100% paid for by the tax payers with no contribution from them.

How many public services aren't paid with taxes?, Ace? Firefighters pensions are the target one day, cops the next, teachers another day. WTF is your problem? You forgot politicians, DPW workers, Thruway toll collectors, etc. How long before you attack Wall Street and the ridiculous amount of money those assholes have stolen from all of us......and our taxes went to bail them out? Bitch, bitch, bitch. You must have a miserable life, brother.

The most recent Utica Board of Education meeting was broadcast on public access. In that meeting lady familiar with the budget and accounting spoke about how much it was costing the district every year for retirement benefits and for retitee healthcare. The taxpayers most certainly do fund the teacher's pension.

For every dollar an educator receives from their pension, 7 cents is paid through tax payer funds. 97 cents is paid through the teacher paying into the fund. Google search it. Just make sure it is the legitimate teacher pension site or the NYS comptroller info site. The NYS pension system is one of the strongest in the country. I choose to be a teacher. I do not complain about my job. I love it and feel blessed to work. If you want the pension I have then either become a teacher or fight for a better pension in your chosen profession. Don't blame others because your life is not what you thought it would be. Go out and change it.

Good Teachers should be paid as well as any other professional. They should get full pension after 20 years.

What about all of the professionals in the private sector with like educational requirements who don't have get pensions and can only depend on 401k's and IRA's they've funded primarily with their own money? That is the norm in the private sector(where people work a full 2080 hour man year) so why is it that public sector employees should receive this much greater benefit at the expense of those who are actually footing the bill?

This system will eventually fail. It has to. It's simple math. It can't be sustained at the current rate. Want proof? Ask the public sector employees in Detroit.

Progressives like yourself are always sounding off about "fairness". What is fair about the way this system works? The problem with your point of view is that eventually your kind will run out of other people's money to spend.

What do you suppose happens to "Your Money" while it sits in "Your 401k"?????
Aren't the folks handling it using "other people's money"?
The problem with people like YOU is, you don't understand the simple truth. Pensions work, 401k's are a scam created by the pushers of Reaganomics and Trickle down theory.
Milton Freidman and the "Chicago Boys" were WRONG! Here we are 30 years after the implementation of their "Brilliance" and this Country and the majority of the Middle Class has been Decimated.

Wake up and Smell the Misery that they have wrought! You are surrounded by it.
