Pensions aren’t even best vehicle

Many of us that don’t (or didn’t) make $90,000 per year, and receive a pension of over $3,000 after 30 years, plus a maximum Social Security payment of around $1,500/month are wondering whether these people are ungrateful, not well-educated, just plain selfish, or downright ignorant.

I would think that intelligent people earning that kind of money would have the good sense to explore additional retirement vehicles. There are stocks, bonds, etc., that would yield more money for retirement.

Or maybe their out-of-touch union could find it’s members an honest, fair retirement vehicle.

Maybe they could take responsibility for their own actions and do something positive.
