CLEAN... ENERGY

Offshore wind farms from New Jersey to Virginia took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said today. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. The Mid-Atlantic lease proposal follows the Cape Wind project in Massachusetts that was given the go-ahead in 2010 after 9 years of federal review."No developer should have to wait nine or 10 years," for approval, Salazar said. The response from the developers was "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

Another good thing about it is if you die, you can leave the whole thing to someone, the company just pockets your pension unless your wife is still alive, then she may get a little if you took less

One good thing about a 401K is you can take your vested portions from company to company

I will end up with a couple of pensions one from THE IAM and one from the last company I worked for, but the 401k is the heart of most retirements now.

Yeah I know lots of guys that have had their company pension reduced and 401k contributions ramped up, seems to be the new way. For new hires like you said, NO PENSION at all.

They replaced them with a modified and accelerated savings or "generous" 401K plan.

People my age were grandfathered.

FYI: when I started, there was no such thing as a 401K. We had savings accounts, go to a broker and buy your own stocks, CD's etc.

I know what my plan was. They did away with them with any new hire after 1995.

How utterly naïve ! So the liar thinks companies just wave a magic wand and "poof" a pension appears ! Pensions are mainly supported by employees ! Instead of getting a bigger raise the money is put into a pension fund !

I know someone who pays into a pension and the company he works for isn't union...

Pensions don't mean Union. Lots of companies offered pensions at one time. Are you sure your example is a true pension and not some 401K?

I have never heard of a person actually contributing directly to a pension plan, doesn't mean it never happened just that I have never seen it?

I fail to see why the republicans wish to be drug kicking and screaming into the new world ! Renewable energy will happen whether you like it or not ! You don't hear those in Europe or Alaska whining about it ! They are really quite glad to have it !

In a bid to support the efforts of President Obama’s administration to double renewable energy generation for a second time by 2020, the Department of Energy has announced more than $59 million in funding for solar energy innovation. The Department will make $45 million in funding available to quickly move innovative solar manufacturing technologies to market, and will also make available $14 million for 15 new projects that will help communities develop multi-year solar deployment plans to install solar electricity in homes, businesses, and communities.

Maybe they can find those guys who ran Solyndra.

Yeah , the advantages are the companies get to dip their beaks into it legally !

401k is the current trend but there are advantages to 401 vs pension
