From the NY Post:
The unions may be dead set against it, but New Yorkers overwhelmingly support a new pension system for future government employees.
That’s according to a new Siena College opinion poll, which found that New Yorkers, by 69 percent to 28 percent, wholeheartedly agree with Gov. Cuomo’s proposal for a new pension tier.
And that support is seen across the board — in every demographic, geographic and political group.
Even 56 percent of those in union-member households agree with a plan that would “save money for government employers going forward and have employees make a larger contribution toward their retirement plan.”
