Letter: Justice for state workers


Gloucester Daily Times

---- — To the editor:

It was interesting to note in the editorial about housing authorities (the Times, Wednesday, Jan. 16) that 39 public employees had received both a pension and noncontributing Social Security after working for one day at the Manchester Housing Authority, whereas we state employees working many years for the community college had two-thirds of our contributed Social Security taken away by the state because we have a pension (a small one).

Is this justice?
