We have all heard stories of hard times during "The Depression
As we the National Federal Retirees age,
those stories are becoming very real as our retirement income does not keep pace with this new assault of higher prices. We can barely support ourselves when our government wants to decrease our retirement income and raise the cost of health care.
What can we do as individuals to secure our retirement funds and health benefits?
We have a force in Washington, DC that can speak for us if we join hands across America and be part of NARFE which is a short name for The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association.
We have a force to be reckoned with and we can become stronger as each of us joins The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association.
The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association one of America's oldest and largest associations, was founded in 1921 with the mission of protecting the earned rights and benefits of America’s active and retired federal workers. The largest federal employee/ retiree organization, NARFE has a membership of nearly 400,000 men and women and represents the interests of nearly 2.3 million federal retirees and spouses.
In the United States people have a thing about Unions
or anything that have people joining together in local assemblies. Ronald
Reagan fired Federal Employees who went on strike because of a labor dispute.
Where does the idea of people becoming a union come from?
