The Pension Crisis facing millions of American workers is real.
When the housing market crashed in 2008 and the federal government bailed out Wall Street, big banks and the brokerage house that caused the crisis, but they forgot about the people who were losing the most – YOU!
Since 2008, hundreds of pension plans across the country, that were almost fully funded and well managed prior to the crash, have seen billions of dollars in assets vanish, risking the pensions that current and future retirees and their families have earned from years of working in businesses and industries across the country.
Many of these pension plans will soon become insolvent, leaving families and communities devastated. Through no fault of their own, working-families and retirees could see the pension they worked for eliminated. Without immediate action by Congress, this possibility will become a reality for millions of working-class people.
One of those families could be yours, a family member, a neighbor, a friend or simply another hard-working American who thought their retirement future was secure.
On July 12, 2018, a Joint Committee selected by the leaders of the United States Congress will be preparing to meet at the Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio to determine if the federal government will take action to fix the pension problem they helped create. Labor and its supporters need to be there to have their voices heard and force Congress to take action to preserve the pensions of working people.
The Mine Workers, Teamsters, Bakery Workers and Musicians, will be in Columbus at 11:00 a.m. on July 12, 2018, with dozens of other Unions and supporters. It’s time for Labor to stand together and protect our way of life. It’s time to go to Columbus and raise some hell.
