Chimp: Private Sector Getting Stiffed

Rational Chimp: My Grandfather retired from Kaiser with a great pension and outstanding medical plan. Trained by the Union, he eventually moved into management. Rather than attacking public employees, maybe the question should be -- Why doesn’t the private sector provide more for their employees? Forgot -- they are too busy paying unconscionable amounts to their executives.

Question: Does your company offer a pension plan or a match for your 401(k) contribution or something else?
