What impressed me is not only the quality of the reporting but how Mark dug into the data made available by the state of New Jersey.
He found a story that highlights the kinds of abuses many pension reformers must tackle – double-dipping – or collecting a pension benefit while simultaneously working a government job. In this case, the job didn’t really change the employee simply figured out a way to quit and get-rehired at a higher salary while cashing out a pension for the previous pay grade. Mark’s reporting delves into the practice among New Jersey sheriffs.
The video says it better than any summary I can give.
