1:55 am
talk about. >> reporter: scott thompson says he knows why. a former analyst for calsters, he says he routinely caught administrators gaming the system. >> looking for a dramatic increase in salaries. >> reporter: teachers cannot spike because most belong to unions but administrators can. that is because unlike private sector employees whose social security benefits are based on a salary average, pension for school executives in california who have worked more than 25 years are based on their single highest year. >> when people are paying in at this rate, and then they jump up here, and retire on pension based on a much higher salary, it's a dramatically underfunded pension. >> reporter: scott says he first became aware of the problem when the case of john bayless crossed his desk in 2008. he noticed the former superintendent of the babrio district in half-moon bay
1:56 am
received a $110,000 raise in his last year. >> when i first saw it, i thought, well, clearly someone typed an extra zero. >> reporter: but it was no typo. the compensation jumped from 157,000 to $267,000 in his final year. the spike bumping what would have been a $7,000 per month pension up to $13,000 per month. scott says he flagged the case and many others. >> it is public funds. he is a public servant. the public has a right to know. >> reporter: but scott says no within at calsters seemed to care. instead, the agency fired him in 2011 for adjusting a pension without compensation. he believes it was retaliation for blowing the whistle. soon after he lost his job, lawmaker ins sacramento took up the job passing a reform bill that became a new law. >> it is a question of fairness to the taxpayer. >> reporter: santa clara supervisor joe semidian pushed
1:57 am
for pension reform to prevent spiking when he was state senator. >> i thought it would be an easy and straightforward easy to tackle. >> reporter: he says the new law is an improvement. new employees pensions will now be based on an average of their highest three years pay. but, it is not retro active. so for the next few decades, school executives will still be able to spike based on their single highest salary year. >> every time you artificially inflate that last year salary, you take on a pension obligation for what could be decades to come. >> reporter: and it all adds up. right now, calster's pension obligations are underfunded by $72.7 billion. we wanted to find out if spiking is still going on. but, calsters refused to release information. claiming in response to our public records request, that it doesn't maintain payroll information for members. something scott says is simply not true. >> having worked inside the
1:58 am
pension fund for six years, i knew exactly which data there was on the accountened and it was primarily the salary data. >> reporter: he provided us with a calsters spread sheet showing dozens of spikes still happening. one as high as 91%. >> the final year really does lend itself to abuse. >> reporter: in sacramento, betty yu, kpix5. >> california's pension reform law also caps pensions for new hires and cuts back on special bonuses for all retiring employees. by the way, soon after scott left calsters reduced the inflated pension of cabrio former unified superintendent. he now gets $11,300 a month. >> we have been enjoying the sunshine. but we shouldn't get too comfortable. >> we can enjoy it for a few more dais. showers speaking into the forecast. we will talk about the weekend impact coming up. temperatures outside are

2:02 am
sandwiches. >> subway, the sandwich people, they are crying foul over a
2:03 am
study about their chicken sandwiches. >> yes, according to a new dea test by the canadian broadcasting corporation, only half of subway's oven roasted patty is made with real chicken. what's the rest you might ask? well, subway admits its uses some soy filler. >> like 50%. >> but it deny it is report and says it uses 100% white meat chicken. >> all right.
