A Pension Overhaul Gives, and Later Takes Away - The Ledger

I heard that the Teamsters backed the pension overhaul by lobbying for it, yet opposed it on camera and to the Teamster members! :confused:1 I must admit, when I heard it passed, my first thought was that the only way it could have was due to backing from Teamster leadership! :mad:

Think about it! Who stands to gain the most from this overhaul with all it's loopholes? Certainly not Teamster members! :crying: With the recent pension changes, WITHOUT A MEMBER VOTE I MIGHT ADD, it causes me to be suspicious of those that proport to represent me! :sneaky2:
