Daily Outrage: Private overtime pads officers' pensions 

WHO: City of Yonkers, N.Y.

WHAT: In an effort to pad the state pensions of its retirees, city officials gave police officers extra overtime by assigning them to direct traffic at construction projects for the Consolidated Edison utility, The New York Times reported. Although the company paid the officers’ wages, the overtime was counted toward their pensions. As a result of this and other padding, 100 Yonkers Police retirees are collecting pensions larger than their salaries.

WHY IT’S AN OUTRAGE: This blatant money-grab comes amid massive budget woes for the state.

WHERE TO VENT: Call the city council at (212) 377-6060.
