I worked for a couple of companies that no longer exist. Heck, the building aren't even standing any longer. Then along the way, I decided I could make more money if I worked for myself. But my little business doesn't have a pension plan, so the only thing I pay into is the Canada pension. Too bad I wasn't an MP.
According to estimates that come from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and are based on an MP retiring in 2019 and ceasing to receive their pension at age 80, here is the top 10:
10. Michael Chong - $3,124,903 (2015 = $2,684,816)
9. Peter Van Loan - $3,194,114 (2015 = $2,462,029)
8. Rona Ambrose - $3,330,876 (2015 = $2,429,149)
7. Rob Anders - $3,643,873 (2015 = $3,034,089)
6. Denis Coderre - $3,701,989 (2015 = $3,288,821)
5. Scott Brison - $3,723,666 (2015 = $3,113,881)
4. James Moore - $3,795,386 (2015 = $2,893,658)
3. Gerry Byrne - $3,996,498 (2015 = $3,450,711)
2. Jason Kenney - $4,318,507 (2015 = $3,416,779)
1. Stephen Harper - $5,596,474 (2015 = $5,456,109)
That's pretty good when you stop to think that if I retired when I was 65 and lived until I was 80, I would make about $162,000, which isn't even close to any of these.
An article on the CBS website says:
According to a poll by the Associated Press and LifeGoesStrong.com, a website for the middle-aged, among baby boomers, 73 percent plan to work past retirement -- a number that's up six percent since March.
And... over half of them said they are not likely to ever retire.
Well... I guess I have a lot of company. I'm just going to keep busting these keys....
