Trib & IL Policy Institute on Pension Reform

In an op-ed for the Chicago Tribune, John Tillman and Paul Kersey of the Illinois Policy Institute argue that public sector unions are impeding any solution to the state’s horrific pension debt. “With whatever means they have at their disposal, government employee unions have become a reliable obstacle to positive, necessary and long overdue changes that will give taxpayers relief from the burden of unaffordable employee benefits, improve failing schools and make core government services more efficient.” They conclude: “By freeing our workers we can ensure a more prosperous future for all the people of Illinois, government employees and taxpayers alike.”
