Under the current pension plan, the city contributes money toward its employees' retirement, and the employees know just how much money they will retire with, officials said.

But, unlike the earlier panic of 1893, when California was just a young state with a young economy, California now had close economic ties to the rest of the nation. Soon, the Great Depression made its way to California and to Glendale. In March 1933, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the nation's banks to close their doors, Glendale came to a halt.
