  • I think you mean man heroically spends entire life working and refuses to be a drain on the government once he reaches advanced age. Remember, never rely on the government spend your entire life working and then die before you qualify for medicare, praise be to the glorious job creators.

    Depends on exactly what the plan was. If it was a 401 (k), the balance is what it is. If he was one of those rare ones covered by a defined benefit plan, the answer is maybe (several question have to be answered first).

    Probably, but the company will probably counter their efforts by keeping their claim in the courts until they give up due to financial attrition. At best, they'll get a small fraction of the survivor benefits they're due, and it'll be just barely enough to cover the legal costs they incurred just to get that settlement.

  • Oh you won't take me?
    To Marshalltown.

    If you like working minimum wage at a job that is almost certain to give you COVID...knock yourself out.

    /There's a reason why the employees are mostly immigrants.
    //Also the reason why most are having trouble staying open as COVID spreads...

    seriously doubt you're using a knife for minimum wage at a meat packing plant. you have to know what you're doing and be quick at it, major hustle. they work ass off. they're getting paid.

    ...dude, this is America. The harder you work, the less you're paid.

    And again, mostly immigrants.
  • One more week.  One more week and I'm out.  And now I'm gonna buy it at this goddamned plant!

    An "economic martyr"...

    Only 'Mur'ca could possibly produce such a thing.

    Yep. He might get a buck or two more than minimum wage for his unsafe, non-union slave job - but your point stands.
    America is for the Ownership Class - we threw the Worker under the bus in 1980.

    Nah. The company would spend 5-6X the amount saved in legal costs to hang it up.

    But I do wonder if the company employs a "dead peasant" insurance policy on their workers.

    They can't take out a life insurance policy directly in the worker without the worker knowing, but they could probably insure themselves against any costs arising from employee accidents (physical damage, cleanup, maybe settlements).
  • This is too farked up for a Hallmark movie ... but the story rights would probably replace the pension for the fam.

    The employment agreement probably includes that clause.
