Cuomo Finds Pattern of Workers’ Inflating Pensions
"Many New York state and local government workers pad their pensions  
by drastically increasing their overtime in their last years of  
employment, according to a report released Wednesday by Attorney  
General Andrew M. Cuomo." [This is exactly what Greece just put an  
end to. See article below—shades of things to come...bw]

Greece Approves Pension Overhaul Despite Protests
"The bill would unify the retirement age at 65 years of age for both  
men and women and would reduce payouts by calculating salaries on  
lifetime income as opposed to a worker’s highest, most recent  
pay. ...It would also make it easier for Greek companies to fire  
workers."
