Now Sailor says the federal government is letting that same retirement fund run dry.
There are not enough current railroad employees contributing to the fund to support retirees. [PRE PRO]
But a bill that's been introduced to Congress would allow railroad companies to invest money that it's employees have saved for retirement -- then hopefully, the investments would payoff.
The bill also says railroad companies will pay the difference if the investments DON'T payoff.
Plus, it would lower retirement age from 62 to 60 for employees with 30 years of service.

Roadblocks worked into the First Union-Wachovia merger agreement may prevent any other banks from trying to buy Wachovia.

Investment bankers and industry analysts say several banks could make a more attractive offer for Wachovia than First Union.
But the merger agreement allows each bank to buy almost 20 per cent of the other's shares.
So if another bank offers to buy Wachovia, First Union could own a big chunk of the shares, and therefore be more likely to fend off any rival.

An 87-year old retired school teacher in Martinsville has lost more than 64-thousand dollars she's sent to phony Canadian Lottery mail drops.

She's sent a lot of money to Canada, and gotten nothing but promises. After agreeing to cooperate with U-S authorities, Travis set out to Fed Ex a check to Toronto for 33-thousand dollars.
