On Vicki McKenna: Some State Government Pensioners Collect Windfall in Retirement

July 24, 2018

MacIver Investigative Reporter Matt Kittle discusses his report on generous pension payouts for some Wisconsin retirees on the Vicki McKenna Show, on News/Talk 1310 WIBA. 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.
