If you give a job several decades of dedicated service and then get shot stabbed on the job, you expect to be able to retire on easy street. Not true for this man, who has been left destitute by the city of New York.
A man who worked for 19 years as a subway worker in New York is now seeing his $1,414 per month pension slashed to just $5 dollars. Perry Kinard was nearly killed twice on the job. In 1978, he was stabbed in the lung while mopping the floors in a Manhattan station. In 1990, he was shot in the chest and head at a station in Queens.
The pension system for the city to which he nearly gave his life is now repaying him by nearly killing his entire pension. They say that he was incrementally over-paid for years and are now going to slice his monthly income to almost nothing.
