Number 8 on the list compiled by a a group of pension reformers, Mette collects $240,999 a year in retirement. For a look at all the top ten pensioners, please go here.
Mette's pension shouldn't surprise anyone who's been paying attention. Bloated salaries and benefits have been the long established practice at Sac Metro for some time. A Sacramento Bee investigation last year documented that four of every five five employees at Sac Metro earns more than $100,000 a year.
Teachers are being laid off, libraries closed, and mental health clinics disbanded so that politically powerful fire union members can take home lavish pay and pensions. It's a scandal.
