With sodium warning labels now safely in place, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio took another page out of the “big government playbook” when he led a rally last week at which he announced a plan to mandate retirement savings for all employees of private companies with 10 or more workers where there is not currently a retirement plan.  Under his proposal, which would require support from the federal government, the city would manage a retirement fund for the employees, who would be required to contribute to the fund.  As currently proposed, only the employees would contribute to the fund, but we’ll bet it is not far down that slippery slope before employers will be required to match contributions.
