They should only pay if they are paid same wages as others with SAME EDUCATION/TRAINING/CERTIFICATIONS. these folks always traded off same wages as peers for good retirement. Check it out, they get less as do most, to include teachers for their education and continued educations then others. Most workers go at civil servants wages, but are in truth less well educated.

Who cares what you think about TVA employees contributing to their pension funds? Many of you hear the word "government" and go into convulsions. TVA's business is public record and becomes fair game for anybody to vent their spleens. If TVA weren't here, you'd really howl then when private utilities ask for two to three times what you're paying now. You don't know how lucky you people are. Ask ratepayers in the Midwest and Northeast.

TVA has been a good partner and employer in this area of the country. I can't get my head around all the hostility. I guess that's the way everyone likes it now.

That's right tipper, these people are taking their anger out on the employees who work just as hard and pay taxes just like anyone else. They desrved to earn a company paid pension for their work.
