Defined Benefits plans are expensive usually because Companies would use unrealistic earnings assumptions as well as using discount rates that were high driving the Liability lower. Finally under Federal law Companies are only required to fund the "minimum" which depending on the above assumptions generally resulted in a zero or close to zero required contribution. If this is done over many years, it is almost a certainty the Plan will be underfunded. My experience in this comes as a Union Treasurer for a Union at a major airline that eventually made a trip through Bankruptcy and attempted to Terminate the Plan unsuccessfully. Other airline pensions we're not so fortunate.

Thoroughly enjoying this podcast. Want to clarify from Tears for Sears podcast that Amazon cannot get products everywhere in the US in 2 days. Living in a small city of 35,000 it takes 4-5 days for us to get Amazon packages.

I lost my job to a woman. They told me they could save a lot by hiring her over keeping me. WE NEED EQUAL PROTECTION AGAINST WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE NOW!!!

derpin' against? it sounds like the pay gap actually ELIMINATED your job because they knew they could offer a woman less money for the same/better work. wage equality benefits both men & women, not to mention our children!

The pay gap doesn't exist as it's portrayed if you actually look at the numbers.

Christina Coleman If you want an answer or an actual discussion (which I expect you don't) a condescending tone like that isn't going to get you there.
