People would want a state run plan

You work for a company, you want benefits. When I worked for others, what I wanted was a retirement plan.

So it comes as no shock that people want any type of retirement coverage, even if it is state-run, according to a study from the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS).

According to the study, 77% agree that a state-run program is a good idea. 82 % of Americans said they would participate in state-facilitated retirement programs, a rise from 75% just four years prior in 2020. The sentiment is held across all party lines, with 86% of Democrats, 74% of Republicans, and 71% of Independents showing strong support for state-wide retirement programs.

I like state plans because they increase retirement plan coverage and that could certainly spur employers to have plans of their own if mandated to offer one, or join a pooled employer plan.
