Findings from TUA’s pension project on Columbus, Ohio, are featured in this Associated Press article at 89.7 NPR News. (The original version of this article referred to TUA as a “conservative” group. The error has been omitted below.)
A national group that works to cut pension benefits for government employees is highlighting some payouts to central Ohio workers as a sign of government waste.
Members of Taxpayers United of America began a tour of Ohio on Monday. A new report points to pensions that give a Columbus police deputy $213,000 in annual payouts, $215,000 a year for a state government employee, and $178,000 in annual payouts for a Franklin County government worker.
The group advocates ending pensions for new government hires and requiring workers to pay more toward their pensions.
