PS - this did happen in the US in 1933 when Roosevelt ordered all citizens to sell their gold to the government at a fixed price - and subsequently increased the price by around 75%.

Employees don't typically contributes to a pension. That is company funded and paid.


The hell you don't. Just like insurance costs that is money you are not getting directly as a wage.

The few companies that provide pensions (most do not anymore for cost reasons) are company paid. There are not pension contributions made the employees. It is a benefit cost for the company.

Unless you are saying that you would have a higher salary if they did not have a pension...which I assure you there are no salary increases that happen when pensions are killed.

What Del is saying is Yes that is true, but it is also factored into your compensation, thus it is your contribution, paid by the company, to compensate you for your work. So in theory you are paying it in, just not directly.

I just saw an article on this...

Isn't there a real risk here (no matter the other logical reasons for "holding people accoutanble" or whatever) of a run on the banks?

My comment is that companies usually do not increase your compensation when pensions are killed.
