Scott’s not sweating the “pension tax” lawsuit

A total of  556,296 public workers, including teachers, is suing the state of Florida saying that the new required pension contribution without a pay raise is really a pay cut for hundreds of thousands of state, county and city employees. Florida educators are suing the state on behalf of all public employees in the state retirement system. In filing suit, FEA President Andy Ford said the contribution requirement is “essentially an income tax levied only on workers belonging to the Florida Retirement System.”
