And the other problem with pensions were the companies that were and are doing fine hopped on the no pension boat to save $$$$. The pension system had nothing to do with threatening the viability of the company, it was a money saving tactic.
Everything is a cost, and if the bottom line can be fattened it will be.

The more I see the state of affairs in out govt the more I think the only way things will change is when corporations and the people want the same goals.
That will never happen. Corporations have one purpose by law: maximum profit for their shareholders. People are not and cannot be so easily defined and focused.
Things will change when the people have more power than the corporations -- and government.
Do you have any kind of IRA, 401(K), mutual fund, etc.?
Guess what ... I hate to break it to you, but you are a shareholder.
