Double Dipping

It's about damn time.

In this morning's DesNews is an article regarding a practice in state government that really, really needs to end.

It's the practice of state agencies re-hiring employees who have retired from that same agency. Sure, the logic is there: hire someone who already knows the job and the requirements. Doesn't need to be trained. Known to be reliable. But there's a catch.

That same person who has retired is collecting a state-supplied pension in addition to their salary.

The article states that over the next ten years the practice will cost the state 900 million dollars. That's $900,000,000. Be easy on us and call it a billion.

Get on the phone. Call your legislator. End this now.
