Lavish, Gold-Plated Pensions Making Millionaires of Kansas City & Jackson County Teachers and MO Government Employees
KANSAS CITY–A report released today by Taxpayers United of America (TUA) reveals that Kansas City & Jackson County teachers are not only receiving very generous salaries but that the estimated pension payments of the teachers and MO government employees in many cases are larger than some salaries in the private sector. Furthermore, over a normal lifetime, many of these government employees, when retired, have become pension millionaires.
The State of Missouri refuses to release information on teacher pensions, resulting in their being estimated. Other government pensions are available with FOIA requests.
