One could assume investors have more cushion than employees. But assumptions are not necessarily fact.

Often the "investors" at least in this country, are other pension plans trying to make money for their people, or individuals, who in this country have what is known as a 401k.

My company, based in Germany, ended our pension plan, here in the US a few years ago. Now we only have 401K plans, which they contribute some many to.

If the stock in the plan for a company goes worthless, then my savings decrease.

We need to realize that we are all in this together. If the company fails, nobody wins. Not the investors, not the employees, not the retired people.
