Pete Ernaut ‘UNLV Professors enjoying ‘generous’ benefits?’

January 22, 2011

Pete Ernaught needs to do a some fact checking before making statements. According to the January 22 Las Vegas Sun article,

Cuts may hurt professors, but they should remember they got generous contracts and benefits for the past 20 years.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Generous benefits? Seriously? The fact is Ernaut is assuming professors are part of the PERS system. This is NOT the case. The fact is the benefits are among the poorest in the United States.

Good work Pete for obfuscating the truth.
