Who's retiring well?

Dear Editor:

A recent article about people not having enough money to retire raises an interesting question: whose responsibility is it to make sure you have enough money to retire? You or your employer?

I am sure that the complainers don't take into consideration all the money they waste that could have been invested while they were working to that magic age.

Of course, people who work for the government don't have those complaints: they have the generous taxpayers to them for their fine retirement money (much of which is spent in Florida).

City Comptroller John Liu found that non-governmental workers don't have the necessary funds when retirement comes. Solution: maybe the comptroller can set up a fundraising group to help these hard-pressed residents.

Isn't it ironic that the taxpayer who supports the retired government employee suddenly finds that he doesn't have enough money for his own retirement?
