Well with all the news about Pensions being in Trouble I think back to 81 when I started at UPS. Never making it out of High School I look back now and feel very fortunate that I retired with a decent Pension. During contract years I heard over and over "I want it in my paycheck" Well I was always happy with my hourly wages compared to the rest of the workplaces. Making decent money in an unskilled job I felt I was doing ok. I was never a saver and I always said to myself and others that I would gladly take a dime or quarter per hour and sink the rest into the Pension Funds. Well before you know it...almost 26 yrs flies by and I am retired.. Seeing all the funds that are in the red will hopefully open peoples eyes that maybe they might consider shoring up the plan now for their future pension benefits. Look around and see all the unemployed and what some people made and what they are now working for.. Having a stable and secure pension is something everyone wants and if they last will enjoy down the road, but just as I knew I had job security when I was a driver having pension security should be first on your minds when thinking about up coming contracts because more in your pocket now may mean less in your pension and believe me when I say I feel blessed looking at others in financial stress all around me that wish they had a pension that in some cases have disolved and went poof. Upsers make a decent wage and the pension benefit has to come from your donations into it for it to work.Pension Security...What's YOUR Thoughts?
