16. Pensions were a nice perk long ago

Iíve been in the workforce for 30+ years and none of the companies I have worked for had pension plans. We were expected to fund our own retirement through a 401k, with a meager contribution from the corporate parent.

401ks are invested mainly in mutual funds traded in the Wall Street casino.

My husbandís brother is a union plumber and he retired with a nice pension. Iím envious. Right to work laws have been so damaging since collective bargaining is what ensured him a secure retirement.
