Au­thor should walk in re­tirees’ shoes

RE: Let’s get the Stelco is­sue re­solved (May 10)

So we should just get on with it? We should just let Be­drock do what­ever it wants.

I guess it doesn’t mat­ter (to the au­thor of this let­ter) that peo­ple’s lives will be ir­repara­bly changed (dam­aged). Let’s just get this damn thing done! They don’t de­serve their pen­sions any­way! They’re just a bunch of blood suck­ing low-lifes, right? So what if they lose 20, 30 or even 40 per cent of their pen­sion? They were over­paid any­way. They should have saved more. Is that what you did, saved more? So, you’re good, right? Even if some­one takes 40 per cent of your re­tire­ment in­come away? Are you good with dog food? What do you do when you’re out of the work­force? Are you plan­ning to work un­til you’re 75?

Great re­tire­ment! But let’s not drag this out any fur­ther! It would be re­ally po­etic if this hap­pened to you. Tony Mont­gomery, Stoney Creek
