I’ve been sitting on a fairly pissy blog post dedicated to those people over the years who have bizarrely slighted her accomplishments.

But we’ve been excited!

The myth of state employees with golden retirement benefits needs to die and come back to reality. Administrative faculty SUOAF-AFSCME are in the same slowly sinking ship. I see the movement I had heard started at ECSU to try and improve this for us in ARP is growing, but with fewer years to my retirement, 29 years into my ARP and an economy that is not healthy, and having jumped from Social Security in 1988 I’m not holding my breath for those ‘golden’ years.
