Taxpayers United of America wants hiring freeze until pension crisis fixed

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Taxpayers United of America wants the Illinois government to freeze employee hiring until pension reforms are enacted.

Governor Quinn says he wants to hire 200 new state troopers this year, but the organization says there's not enough money in the state's budget due to pension payouts.

They claim that the top 200 pensions in our state are each collecting more than $102,000 per year.

That's nearly 20 percent more than their annual salary was when they were employed.
