He already has retired, unfortunately from a disability. I guess my point is that in some cases, the money collected doesn't even need to be directed to pension funds and therefore all of it can be squandered. Except, of course, that money devoted to their own salaries. Hopefully, the USDOL/OPWBP is still doing audits of pension plans and thwarting any illegal dipping in. I'm not anti union, without it we'd be up the creek. But I think they've gone way overboard. They propagate an "us against them" mentality between workers and management. I also think there should not be any public employee unions as their salaries and benefits are totally based upon the taxpayers' ability to pay instead of a private company's willingness and expertise
