A three-month hiring freeze has been ended, but Gov. Kitzhaber has implemented a new freeze.

The new freeze will maintain restrictions on hiring supervisors and managers.
The overall freeze ended after lawmakers rebalanced the state budget and adjourned their 2012 session Monday. That freeze, which Kitzhaber ordered after a Nov. 17 forecast projected less in tax collections than budgeted, always was seen as temporary until lawmakers had a chance to review state finances.

Until the PERS issues are addressed AND resolved, there should be NO new hiring at the state, county or city level. If it is not corrected, we WILL end up like San Jose California. More than 50% of their current payroll goes to retirees. As a non-government worker, I struggle to pay into my retirement all while a portion of my tax dollars go to a retiree who is receiving a nice monthly PERS payment that is equal to approximately 80%-90% of their wages while working. Not a good way to spend our tax dollars.

837 PERS retirees make over $100,000 off the taxpayers every year. This is highway robbery and killing this state.
