The goal of management at EK is obscure to say the least.
However, no on here has addressed the fact that there are several retirement plans out there and only 1 or 2 out of this group are in danger of vanishing. Mine is in virtually no danger. I would lose about 1% of it if they took away that part.
The same is true of our medical benefits. There are several plans. They are roughly divided into 2 or 3 (or more) depending on age and are linked to Medicare. So there are double sets for those under 65 and those over.
And on it goes.
Some people will lose everything and some nothing or virtually nothing of their pension, and the same is true of health care.
Those at one end, are more outspoken about many of these issues than are those at the other end.
But, in the final analysis, I think that most of us side with those who are astounded that management would try to gain such a huge benefit from Kodak in its current condition.
