Insurance News Net.
Joined by retired Teamsters and miners today, Congressional Democrats called for immediate passage of their legislation to ensure the pensions that American workers have earned over a lifetime of work are protected into the future...
...Rep. Donald Norcross (D-NJ) said, "These Americans earned their pensions through a lifetime of hard work. Now we need to help keep the promises we made so they can retire with dignity. I'm an electrician by trade and spent years installing and restoring power for New Jersey homes, businesses and industrial sites. As a participant in a pension plan myself, I know how these workers feel. Through no fault of their own, their livelihoods are at risk. We must act now on solutions that honor their work and grow membership so future generations of Americans can have the peace of mind of a secure retirement."
