TO INCREASE awareness of the critical issue of our pensions, the coalition recently launched a new statewide radio ad that tells the truth about pensions, which says:
- ”Nearly 80% of Illinois public employees do not receive Social Security.
- ”For many, the modest pension they earn and pay for is their life savings-–their only source of retirement income.
- ”While public employees faithfully contributed to their pensions each and every paycheck, the politicians failed to make the required payments into the pension systems.
- ”Now the politicians are punishing our teachers, nurses, and other public employees. That’s wrong.”
