Double dipping or the process of hiring retires back in their old job so that they are collecting both salary and a pension. I agree with the papers that are saying this is problematic. Unfortunately these same papers could have taken a principled stand with David Ward. Ward was brought in as interim chancellor of UW Madison and then the papers joined with the faculty to recommend that he stay 2 years. What the public needs to know is that chancellor Ward is a retired state employee and as such is collecting a pension and a salary (a very high one). Why the double standard main stream state media.
