European Tribune - Airport Workers Strike 7 Airports in England Jan 7
It would be constructive for the EU to set enforceable high standards for pension etc., based on the previous company directed pension plans as long as they providing the best possible security for the employees.
I don't know why companies should be expected to provide private pensions. In effect employer-provided pensions are a for of deferred compensation that is not protected against the company going belly-up. Why we need is strong social security.
