Support Pension Fairness
January 15, 2014
To: All MoveUP Members in Calgary at Home/Work
We need to do something about retirement income. Even bank economists have started to say RRSPs have failed. There’s too much risk and not enough security to ensure that, after a lifetime of work, people can retire and live out their last years in dignity.
Too many of today’s seniors live in poverty and too many older workers are realizing their retirement plans have come up short because the investment returns they were promised never materialized or they simply could not save enough on their own.
The best way to help today’s workers save enough money for tomorrow is by increasing what everybody gets from the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) as a share of their total retirement income.
The Calgary and District Labour Council and the Canadian Labour Congress are taking action by organizing a door knocking campaign. Join them to help expand the CPP.
