    Buying additional year credits, Packing overtime and unused vacation into final year. Pension spiking is rampant here in California. Legal yes. Going BK absolutely.

      you forgot banking sick days. some Milwaukee County retirees have 5 years plus of sick days saved. You wonder why Walker is hitting the public service unions so hard? His last job was Milwaukee County Executive. And the sick day abuse is just the tip of the iceberg.
      I forgot that these sick days can be cashed in, or used to retire early.
