`Equal Pensions For All!’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hL3dE2oRBQ

A protest folk song from 2015 that explains why all retired workers in the United States should receive an equal and adequate amount of pension money from the U.S. economic system and U.S. government in the 21st-century.
(lyrics)
See the people marching and cheering for the cause
Hear the old folks singing and chanting to applause:
“The low pay that you gave us for the worst jobs made us poor
So now we demand: `Equal Pensions For All!’

“For fifty years you forced us to work for minimum wage
And forced us to be robots and labor as your slaves
And in order to get hired, you forced us all to crawl
So now we demand: `Equal Pensions For All!’

“From all of your temp agencies and factories that you shut down
And all your laid-off workers and all your mortgage loans
You made yourself big money by breaking labor laws
So now we demand: `Equal Pensions For All!’

“You inflated your own salaries while watching us clean your floors
And gave yourself large pensions to play golf in Florida
While we all starve in cities to pay rent to your landlords
So now we demand: `Equal Pensions For All!’

“You chained us to computers in your office skyscrapers
Or fired all who rebelled in your restaurants and stores
You did not pay more taxes on the profits you made from War
So now we demand: `Equal Pensions For All!'”

Yes, see the people marching and cheering for the cause
Hear the old folks singing and chanting to applause:
“The low pay that you gave us for the worst jobs made us poor
So now we demand: `Equal Pensions For All!’
Yes, now we demand: `Equal Pensions For All!'”
