Youngstown Ohio: Top Secret Government Pensions Revealed

YOUNGSTOWN— Taxpayers United of America (TUA) revealed government employee wages and pension estimates for Youngstown and Mahoning County.  Ohio’s government employees are not only receiving generous salaries, but when retired, many will become pension millionaires.  Ohio officials refused to release pension figures, so the pension payouts are close estimates* for this report.
“Why are Ohio lawmakers hiding their pension information?  Are they more concerned with protecting abusers, than reforming a system that holds taxpayers hostage?” asked Christina Tobin, TUA Vice President.
“Youngstown area taxpayers struggle through this recession with average wages of $33,000, while government employees really rake it in for as many as 31 years of retirement benefits.  The maximum annual Social Security annual benefit is $22,000, regardless of how much an individual earned in their working career.”
