Just another example of the unsustainable benefits New Jersey state workers receive
State corrections office Stewart Harris, a PBA union leader, earns the same salary as other members of his union with at least 12.5 years on the job -- $70,480 -- which will increase to $72,136 in late December.
Harris, 44, plans to retire next June on a pension that will pay him 65 percent of what he earned as a correctional officer. Additionally, the insurance premium for his retiree health benefits will be paid by the state.
This guy will retire at the age of 45 with free health benefits for life and a yearly pension of $46,888.
