Save on pensions today by cheating your future workers. RI, TX and Ohio do it!

The New York Times article explains the procedure

"The maneuver, and techniques that have similar effects, are already in use in Rhode Island, Texas, Ohio, Arkansas and a number of other places, allowing those states to harvest savings today by imposing cuts on workers in the future.

Texas saved millions of dollars this year after raising its retirement age for future hires and barring them from counting unused sick leave in their pensions. More savings will appear in coming years. Rhode Island also raised its retirement age for future retirees last year, after being told it could save $90 million in the first year alone."

Brooklyn malls restrict teen gatherings - But they require IDs of college students too.

NY Times article tells of Mall restriction on groups of teenagers.

"On Thursday, at an entrance on Flatbush Avenue, a guard asked Chaniece Faulkner, 20, of Canarsie, for identification. She handed over an ID from Monroe College, and her friend Sharivia Alford, 19, of Coney Island, showed one from Lehman College. Allowed to enter, they went straight to a McDonald’s.

Ms. Faulkner said she was not happy about having to show identification. Then again, she said, looking around the mall, “it’s calmer than usual.”

Egg farm workers complained of filth - now there's a recall.

"They also said boxes that contained eggs that were cracked in shipping and rejected by stores were returned to the distribution center. Although by then they were weeks old, some eggs that were not cracked were repackaged and sent back out, Robert Arnold said.

"I complained that that was wrong because they were old eggs, and the USDA person said it was OK because they do it all the time," he said."
