State Legislators are considering using the Lame Duck session as an opportunity to rob public employees of their retirement benefits. Led by anti-working-families billionaires including Dick DeVos, who believe that workers should only have access to a risky 401(k)-style retirement plan, there will likely be a serious attempt made to ban traditional pensions in the public sector. This would mean that hundreds of thousands of public employees would no longer have access to the most efficient and secure method of providing for retirement.
We need your help to push back against this attack on the retirement security of middle class Michiganders. Please contact your State Senator and tell them that the Lame Duck session is no time to mess with people’s livelihoods.
