We must fight to protect state-based retirement plans.

The dream of enjoying a simple dignified retirement when we can no longer work is now in jeopardy for millions of Americans.

Under pressure from big financial and insurance companies, U.S. senators are considering resolutions that will undo Labor Department regulations that make it easier for states and cities to develop their own retirement plans for low- and middle-income families.

These regulations will further rig the system against working families who want an opportunity to retire with dignity after a lifetime of hard work.

In the United States, any person who works hard and plays by the rules should not be forced to make the difficult decision between retiring in poverty and working until they die. It’s time for lawmakers to put ideology and corporate interests aside and concentrate on solving the retirement crisis that threatens every American family. Send an email to your senators – today.
