No one in their right mind will every join the Union again if this goes through. A seven minute speech was all it took for Congress and Senate to vote to destroy the lives and livelihood of those who worked their lives away for the Union to have a retirement. They say it will not reduce plans of those on disability, but of course they do not include Social Security Disability. I have had major health issues like many other and cannot go back out and get another job. I have stood outside in the snow and cold on picket lines to back my Union and for what? A 50% cut is life a life changing amount that will put many people into financial destress, not to mention the emotional stress of this. Where is our government’s promise to helping their own people? They will bail out everyone around the world except the hard working people who were the backbone of this country. We are being forced into poverty and social and economic impacts that will have us all affected. It is devastating.
