A constitutional amendment that states you can not be made to pay into your own pension. Could someone tell me where that is buried in the Constitution?
The Florida Education Association on Monday filed a class action lawsuit against Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) and several administrators with oversight over a state retirement fund, alleging that they violated teachers' existing contracts with an "unconstitutional" 3% pay cut imposed by the recently-passed budget.
In the suit, the FEA claims that the state made backdoor cuts to teachers' salaries in the new budget by forcing them to begin paying 3% of their earnings into a retirement fund as a way to reduce the government's obligation to pay into that pool. The suit argues that the change reneges on promises made in the current contracts, and is therefore illegal.
