Pension Debt skyrocketing (source:  www.PensionTracker.org):

Glendale taxpayers are obligated to pay city employees most of their pay and benefits for the rest of their lives.  This amount is so large that now the City is in debt (unfunded liabilities), and it could bankrupt the City.  The City should pay off this debt and move employees over to 401(k) retirement plans.

The Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research says this debt could be as high as $1.4 billion 

Paying off this debt will keep the City out of bankruptcy and future debt.  401(k) plans pay employees now and give them immediate financial security and control over their future.
