If everyone received a pension that would be great but that is not the case. I work really hard and do not have one; at 52 I was relying on hard work and a stable economy for my retirement. I have lost over 50% of my net worth over the past 4 yrs and I am disgusted at the Unions, Governemnt and Billionaires for destroying my country. Sorry if the truth hurts. I love the people in the Unions but we can not afford allocating resources to a few at the expense of all hard working, tax paying, struggling citizens.
