Unions Take Beating in California, Too

Wisconsin was not the only place that public sector unions got hit yesterday. It also happened in California. First, from the San Diego Union-Tribune: “A ballot initiative that would replace guaranteed pensions with 401(k)-style plans for most new city hires received overwhelming support Tuesday from San Diego voters who were clearly fed up with the decade-long civic discussion about the city’s pension problems. Proposition B is viewed by supporters — including Mayor Jerry Sanders and City Council members Carl DeMaio and Kevin Faulconer — as pivotal to moving the city past its fiscal woes that stem, in part, from the decision by previous city leaders to twice increase benefits for workers without identifying a way to pay for them.”

So pension reform, big, big, big win in San Diego.
