Public employee "double dipping" on the wane; unions fight back with words on pension attacks
There are still some states, such as Wisconsin, that sometimes allow employees to go back to work and still collect pensions, as in this Racine Journal Times story from Oct. 2011, link. That “double dipping” is supposed to come to an end.
Nevertheless, unions are fighting back from the verbal attack on the “pension tsunami” from public employee pensions, as with this Teamsters post. Yet the post has more to do with wages of uniformed services and teachers than with pensions themselves.
