STOCKTON, CA - The Stockton city council unanimously approved temporary changes to employee salary and benefits Tuesday night.

...The city attorney informed the attendees that it wasn't illegal for the city to make changes to current retiree benefits programs, because the contract states the city can change the program any time it wants if the funds are no longer available.

Yup. My District Rep Diana Lowery is not looking happy in that side shot is she. LOL

That was an interesting meeting to say the least. What is sickening is that it took until our city is on the edge of bankruptcy for city employees to finally understand that the fiscal crisis started four frigging years ago. Many are still in denial. Living off the fat cat contracts that when stupidly agreed to when times were fat. "Fat City" fits our berg just right.

But, I digress some progress is better than no progress for the most miserable city in America.
