Irony Alert #17

Times are tough.

"Saks, General Motors, newspaper group McClatchy, clothing company J.Crew, FedEx, UPS, Coca-Cola Bottling, Reader’s Digest, Motorola, Regions Financial and Sprint Nextel are among the growing list of companies which have suspended contributions in recent months.

Even the AARP, the influential advocacy group formerly known as the American Association for Retired Persons, will suspend contributions to its staff 401(k) plan from March 22 for the rest of the year."

I wonder if these matching payments are ever coming back.


The futures have been gaining momentum over the last hour as the chatter is that Geithner may actually have some details to share.
