We Need a Broader Definition of What Benefits Are

You know, like Molson:
Beer maker Molson is turning off the tap and cutting off the supply of free suds to its retirees, the Toronto Star reported on Tuesday.

Molson, a division of Molson Coors, said it was looking to "standardize" its complimentary beer policy.

There are 2,400 Molson retirees in Canada and their free beer costs the company about C$1 million ($900,000) a year, the Star said.
Being on TRS 3, where it's a 50/50 proposition whether you'll retire or die first, I know that a complimentary liquor policy would help me be more positive about the state of things. And since Washington State has a monopoly on the liquor store business, it seems doable!

Write your Legislator today.

It might be a good way to encourage me to retire early if the beer benefit stays. :)
