Stand Up for Secure Retirement
Every American should be able to retire in dignity. But, in states across the country politicians (who receive world class benefits) are teaming up with Wall Street special interests to scapegoat teachers, firefighters, and nurses to fill budget shortfalls that were caused by Wall Street greed. These public employees put their life savings into the pensions systems and have never failed to make their contributions on time. Many do not even get Social Security.
Public employees paid into their pensions and it’s time for politicians to stop scapegoating teachers, firefighters and nurses in order to provide a windfall to Wall Street. It’s time that the politicians find a solution that doesn’t undermine retirement security for millions of workers.
I demand that politicians stop scapegoating teachers, firefighters, and nurses and find a solution to budget shortfalls that doesn't undermine retirement security for millions of workers.
