“Like Winning The Lottery” – Adamczyk Discusses State’s Generous Pension Payouts

July 24, 2018

Wisconsin State Treasurer Matt Adamczyk joins MacIver’s Matt Kittle on the Dan Conry Show, on News/Talk 1310 WIBA, to discuss a revealing report from the state Department of Employee Trust Funds. While most people think taxpayer funded pensions are supposed to pay out a percentage of a retired state employee’s salary, it turns out many are making much more. One pensioner, for example, makes more than $751,000 – five times their state salary when they were at their earnings peak.
