New Sidebar Posted to 'Pensions' Article

Last week's article on pending pension-reform legislation was accompanied by a sidebar that at first only appeared in the TNS Weekend mailing we send only to Premium Members who donate regularly to The NewStandard, but now we're making it available here for everyone. It takes a look at how employees at IBM, once known for its generous benefits package, are now feeling the squeeze that industrial-sector workers have long sought to defend themselves against. With a nod to their blue-collar counterparts, some employees and retirees are organizing to save their pensions and health care from corporate "restructuring."
