Stockton City Council 10-point Action Plan for Employee Costs

I agree with this plan to create more realistic public employee costs, and I commend the City Council for adopting these principles. The document is 8 pages, and can be accessed here, see pages 53-60.

Key provisions are that employees need to make a contribution to their health and retirement benefits, salary levels should not be automatically tied to those paid by other, much richer cities like Huntington Beach, and more. Even if all these changes are made, city employees will still have a very good compensation and benefits package.
