Everyone in Oregon gets PERS, sort of. If you work for a substandard employer and retire without adequate income you can get your "PERS" through public assistance. Not dignified, not well funded and certainly not ideal but you will get it or become homeless - then maybe the business community will help out - oh not so much! You make great points and youre right, of course everyone should have a PERS to count on - I have a 401 K that now means I work till I die.
