Today on Your Call: What’s the right future for public employee pensions in California?

images_0.jpg

On today’s Your Call, we will have a debate about the Pension Reform Act of 2014, a measure that would allow cities to adjust workers retirement benefits. Proponents argue that pension obligations are overwhelming city budgets; opponents say this is an attempt to fix city budgets on the backs of workers. Where do you stand in the pension debate? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Dave Low, Chairman of Californians for Retirement

Bill Kampe, Mayor of Pacific Grove
