As the Mayor of Buena Park, CA. I and the rest of the council support pension reform. Our current general employees currently pay 2% into the pension plan. Police 0. We will ask at contract time for general employees to pay 8% and police 9%. It's that or the danger of the city going bankrupt.
I retired from the County of Los Angeles 20 years ago. I paid into that system and they still require that all employees pay their share. (no 3% at 50).
