Corzine: Only government employees who work 20 hours a week should get pensions.

Wow, what a great reform!

The Star Ledger reports that Corzine wants to limit government pensions to employees who work 20 hours per week or more. Where else can one get a part time job with a pension? Goldman Sachs? I doubt it.

This is ridiculous.

Senator Barbara Buono, chair of the Senate Budget and Appropriations committee wants to limit pensions to workers who work "full time" or 35 hours per week. When did 35 hours become full time?

How about making full time be 40 hours per week, like the real world.

With full time employees working 14.3% hours more, we should be able to reduce the number of employees by 14.3%. That would create a savings and I bet no one would notice a decline in service.
