Why should a 66 year old private worker pay taxes to take care of these public retirees 20 years younger? In this case, the teacher would be getting $60,000 the first year of retirement and it goes up 3% every year.
Said teacher would probably cash in and then take a private worker's job in order to make even more money. Tons of public "retirees" do this. Or even move to a different jurisdiction to create a second pension for when they truly retire.

It's funny how they're willing to early-sunset, spike, and double-dip the system dry, but then complain at first opportunity about fairness.
