    The village allows the Chief to retire so he could start collecting a SIX FIGURE PENSION (no private sector worker in the state gets a six figure pension and 98% of the private sector workers don't even get a pension) and then hire him back a day later to a "DIFFERENT TITLED BUT SAME JOB" for $136K!!!

    Pension: $100K
    New Salary $136K
    Tax Payer getting screwed to the tune of $236K!!!

    Are you kidding me!!! This state is so broke, they crammed down one of the highest income taxes on the middle class in the country and the deficit STILL rose. The CORRUPT DEMOCRATS can't get pension reform even though it was needed since the 90s! Those corrupt democrats are too big of PUSSIES to take on the UNIONS!!!!!!!!

    Therefore, corrupt BULLSHIT like this happens.

    I know a retired AF mechanic who got a civilian job working on the very same F-16's he maintained while in the service!

    What was the guy supposed to do? Refuse the job?

    As long as there was no cronyism involved or any other laws broken I see no problem with it.

    Tend to agree with this. The problem isn't that the guy is still working and contributing. The problem is he was able to retire TOO EARLY -- with TOO MUCH in benefits.

    I actually believe it would be cheaper to move PHYSICALLY demanding jobs (fire, police, road crews) into office jobs for ages 50 to 65, then to keep an age 50 or 55 retirement benefit. Move their jobs -- but don't let them retire at 50 or 55 with almost full pensions.

    That's just ASKING for this kind of outrage..

    Dead on, Doc.

    The problem is the officials who rubber stamp the laws, and regs.

    First, this is all public sector!
    Second, I don't blame the guy as much as I blame the system. The guy retired to get a pension and then a new position with the same job requirements were created the next day! How do you not have a problem with that? Especially when the out-of-control IL pensions are BANKRUPTING the state.
