I believe that regional comparisons ranking Alexandria's employee benefits are deeply flawed. The truth is that general employees are heavily penalized for retiring before 30 years of service, so substantial levels of personal savings are essential. I served Alexandria for 22 years full-time. Sworn and school employees have far more generous pension benefits than general employees, and higher salary scales. Their pensions therefore have correspondingly higher costs on a per-employee basis.
