Every one should pay into social security and there most not be any overhanging liabilities.
When the books are closed for the year, all revenue and obligations need to be accounted for and the books balanced. The current pension plans do not fit this, and needs to be changed to a defined contribution plan.

Give them the 2% a year only if they agree to move to a std define contribution retirement benefit plan. Otherwise ZERO increase each and every year.
We must stop kicking the can down the street and deal with the overhanging liability of the defined benefit plans.

Is Fair Share Reduction a new thing? Is Montecito union having to give back money? They get well over $20K per student from property tax.

Welcome to Obamacare!
With all the health mandates private insurance will skyrocket - UCSB is just seeing the start of price increases.
Where does this end? If we are to have socialized medicine the Feds need to take responsibility and not shove it downstream.
Do it like other social medicine counties -
Single payer
2% tax on salaries
Basic standard of care
If you want a higher level of care - pay for it.

US health care is 4x's mor expensive than other countries with worse results.
And we still need tort reform
