Union Rank-And-File: "Yes" To Personal Accounts.

Social Security Choice notes a recent poll of union members, with these not-so-surprising results (click here for .pdf)--

"Members of labor unions think offering personal retirement accounts to workers under age 55 is a good idea by more than a two-to-one margin, so long as nothing changes for workers age 55 and older, and six out of ten union members say they are at least somewhat likely to create an account if given the opportunity."

More results (click images for original .pdf)-

Very few these days still hold on to the "there is no crisis" fallacy:


Union members correctly understand that the longer we wait, the larger the crisis will grow:


We've been saying this one for quite some time now. People believe there is a problem. They want a solution. Doing nothing is not an option at this point:


Union members tend to trust themselves to make the right choices far more than the government or their union:


More than two-thirds of union members are either not very confident or not confident at all that, without change, their grandchildren will receive the Social Security benefits promised to them currently:


Union members aren't buying the bit about the "trust fund" snake oil panacea:


Union members support reform if nothing changes for those over 55:

The rank-and-file support reform, while the union bosses continue to obstruct and self-destruct. It's no wonder union membership has fallen so dramatically over the past half century.
