Wow.. really? Even if you are a convicted felon you are still entitled to your money.
According to this, public employees in Washington get taxpayer guaranteed retirements EVEN IF they are convicted criminals. Awesome huh?
And it gets worse. Teachers in that state can earn the right to LIFETIME RETIREMENT benefits for working for only five years.
The sourcelink news station asked the state for a list of all of the teachers who’ve had their teaching licenses revoked to see what their pension plans looked like, and it turns out 22 teachers, most of which had been convicted of crimes AGAINST KIDS, have received $5.1 million in taxpayer retirement benefits as of the end of 2014.
