Fairness is a concept that our society treasures and something that we, as law enforcement officers, value highly.
On this episode of the Blue View, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down Representatives Garret N. Graves (R-LA) and Abigail A. Spanberger (D-VA) to discuss the negative impact the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO) are having on America's public employees.
The WEP and GPO provisions do not eliminate a windfall for workers. It is a loss of the benefits they earned and are denied because they also served the public and have a pension from that work. That’s not right and it’s not fair. Passing the ‘Social Security Fairness Act’ would make a real difference in the lives of our nation’s retired public servants.
