Milwaukee County: A Pension Plan With a Zoo

Think your Milwaukee County taxes are high now?

Wait a few years.

A pension benefit that allows Milwaukee County employees to retire at 50 or in rare cases even younger carries a price tag of up to $90 million - much higher than the estimate given when the benefit was approved in the 1990s.

The JS story gets worse from there--if you're a taxpayer NOT working for the County with AFSCME membership.
