Mr. Thachuk, a provincial assessor for 33 years, was forced to leave his defined-benefit pension and start over in a different one in 1998 when Mr. Harris’s Progressive Conservative government moved the assessment branch of the Ministry of Finance to municipal control. Being in two different pension plans means his retirement benefits will be more than $10,000 a year less than they would be if he had been able to stay with the provincial one.
OMG, he will make less money because the world changed.
STOP THE PRESSES! This travesty cannot be tolerated.
An estimated 10,000 civil servants have split pensions,
HOLY SMOKES. 10,000!!! WOW. Such an important issue. This must be priority #1 for the government.
Mr. Thachuk, whose $120,000-annual salary is published on the so-called Sunshine List, understands that he is hardly a sympathetic character in the fight to help Ontarians who are without retirement savings.
But, he argues, this is an issue of fairness: “This is not about civil servants and gold-plated pensions. We are the cautionary tale. If it happened to us, it can happen to you.”
This fucking 1%'er bitch isn't thankful for his bloated salary, he also wants to be able to suck his grand kids dry while living a worthless existence post-retirement ...
Maybe this guy drops dead the day before he gets to cash in his precious pension. That would be ironic.
The number of Ontario government employees pulling down six-figure salaries has topped 100,000 for the first time ever, despite the government’s promises to tighten its belt in the face of a massive deficit.
Premier Kathleen Wynne’s chief of staff, Tom Teahen, made more money last year than the chief of staff to U.S. President Barack Obama.
LMFAO. The advisor to a man with his finger on the button makes less than an advisor to our lesbian cunt premier of this shit hole debt-ridden province. In fact the advisor to the premier makes more than the premier. I wonder how much respect he has for his "boss".
A staggering 38 per cent of the new names on the list are municipal employees – including police, firefighters and transit operators – at a time when cities across the province are struggling to balance their books and upgrade outdated infrastructure.
