why you never do company run pension or stock retirement, any conflict of intrest, will mean you lose.

control your own money.

besides pensions, taxes and SS money often doesn't get paid either, but you just don't see a loss as the GOV doesn't make you pay for what they took from your check for that but never sent in.
Most unions insist that pension funds are held by a third party (contract dictated), takes the threat of bankruptcy out of the equation.
