Re: When Private meets Public

said by Kommie:

This is what happens when the state outsources to a private company/enterprise. If they kept it public they could of paid someone 60k to do the same job in WV.

Maybe public in WV but if you tried it in New York, it would be more like $200K base plus overtime, kickbacks (NYC), fully paid benefits and a heavily loaded public pension. The fact is anything involving the government whether done with "public" employees or "private" employees, will involve the taxpayers getting screwed for enormous amounts of money with nothing to show for it.

Hell, at $200k it is still a savings over what we got from letting Verizon give it to someone! Contrary to your statement, there are actually several community broadband projects running successfully with plenty to show for it.

How do you figure? The way pensions are doled out here, we would keep paying that person until they and their family were all deceased. Any initial savings would be more than offset by future payments to the pension system.

So then why have the pension systems worked fine up until the point where tax revenues took a hit?

That's just their nature. All Ponzi schemes work fine for a while.

Yes, as Wall St. Is finding out.

For pensions to be a Ponzi scheme, the new employees would be paying the pensions of the retirees and would require a constantly increasing number of workers... that doesn't happen. The company (or government) pays the pensions as part of the retirees' salary which has been deferred and numbers of workers (in general and federally) is going down, not up.
