Failed pension in Prichard for New York Times

It is old news to most of us in lower Alabama, and certainly City of Prichard retirees who have been denied their benefits have been dealing with the problem for over a year, but New York Times reporter Michael Cooper came to town in December to report on the financial problems in Prichard, which, it turns out is the only city in the U.S. to stop paying its retirees. His story explains it better than I can and is well worth a read if you haven’t seen it already. I had the opportunity to meet some of the people who have been most affected by the failed system while working on the story.
