Pension spiking: Turning sick days into retirement pay [Ted Rall]
Cartoonist Ted Rall is referring to John Sandbrook, a retired University of California administrator, who, as Paul Pringle and Rong-Gong Lin II reported, "used the sick leave allotment for most of his university career to boost his annual pension by $655 a month for life, to nearly $183,000."
Some will argue that our tax money shouldn't go toward boosting an already generous pension. Rall puts out an additional issue up for debate: What's the most honest way of fulfilling one's public trust?
