Pensions for The Accountant
Not a huge ERISA reference, but pensions make it into the Ben Affleck flick, The Accountant.* Jon Bernthal (Shane, from The Walking Dead, for fellow fans), as Brax, is beating on John Lithgow's Lamar Blackburn, while also expressing great anger regarding some of Lamar's financial shenanigans. He identifies the harm being done not only to several companies, but also to their employees. He then goes on to complain, while inflicting enormous physical pain, "Pensions are being rendered worthless because of you." Hey, now THAT's some serious stuff.
* By the way, Ben's Argo was the subject of one of my more prescient posts.
