Rauner's 401-K Plan Wouldn't Include Police and Fire


Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner says he would not include police officers and firefighters in his plan to move public sector workers to a 401-k type of retirement plan.

 

Rauner has proposed such a system for teachers, state workers and others in cash-strapped state-funded pension systems.

 

But he tells a Chicago TV station that the unique dangers that police and firefighters face means they should not be treated the same way.

 

AFSCME blasts the idea, saying Rauner forgets the dangers faced every day by corrections workers, highway crews, or workers at mental health facilities.
