<<Worked at McDonnell Douglas for 29 years. Then the plant closed, one year before he qualified for a full pension. For the last 9 years, he has been a greeter at WalMart.

Sounds like fake news.

Under the ERISA law, employees become entitled to share in pensions after five years on the job, and accumulate benefits after that time. So talking about not getting a "full" pension after 29 years sounds bogus.


Perhaps he qualified for 29 years of pension and not 30, but that's not the implication of the remark.
