The Labor Research Association Announces A Public Forum
Eating Cake Or Eating Crumbs: The Crisis In Retirement Security
The number of real pensions--defined benefit pensions--has
declined dramatically. Since 1978, the number of
defined-benefit plans has plummeted from 128,041 plans covering
some 41 percent of private-sector workers to only 26,000 today.
In 2005, only 55 percent of full-time and part-time private
sector workers worked at firms that sponsored a retirement plan.
How will workers survive in their retirement years? And what
does that mean for the economy?
