Ytown1 and Walter Sobchak your statements that the public can not afford to pay 100 % of public employees pension contributions is so false that it shows your lack of true information about the subject. The false information is being spread by business groups that are trying to make Ohio a right to work state. They take one or two extreme examples and try to make it seem like every public employee is milking the system. Most public employees retire with a pension of about 25k to 40 k after 25 to 33 years of service. Some have to pay between 600 to 900 a month for health insurance.
