I was in a union, Teamsters. Getting a pension now. That's true, unions can be good or bad. Both sides need a voice. The secret is both voices need to be reasonable.
Pensions. That's one of the things I think needs to go away. Obviously, if you were promised one, you should receive it.
But, why should my employer have to pay me when I'm not working for them?
because we tried this and we got sick of old people dying in the streets.
it's not like at the turn of the century everyone though "wouldn't it be hilarious if we f**k over employers for no reason?"
What does a pension have to do with that? That's the reason that Medicare was established.
