A history of pensions in six minutes

The two stars of this entertaining video give us their unique - and accurate - take on the history of pensions and what led companies to ask for pension funding relief in the financial bailout.

Watch the video and let us know what you think.


A very, very good video. However, companies are shafting employees with the 401K as it does not do what the media says it can or will do. It lasts for only 7-8 years for most employees. If a worker (and often times does) lives 5-7 years or more, and companies don't want to too long, meaning if they live 10-20 years or more perhaps the compromise is guarantee a certain $ amount till a certain age, and allow for a spouse or domestic partner and then guarantee after a certain % amount after a certain age. I think for companies that are truly suffering financially or are small sized this might be a good alternative.

I do very much welcome commentary


Short enough to allow those of us that are impatient understand what is going on?
I sure wonder how much flack will be coming from FOX news? Thank you mam for your efforts on all our behalf. Say Hi to Karen and John for me......
