In contrast, CalSTRS, like the New York funds, focused public pension funds limited shareholder-proposal activism on social issues: three of its four shareholder proposals involved environmental concerns, in addition to a proposal seeking to empower shareholders to call special meetings.

These workers include law enforcement officers and firefighters. Originally, governmental plans were included along with private plans in the legislative proposals leading up to the passage of ERISA.

For someone entering the workforce, the type of retirement plan an employer provides could affect the choice of where to go to work.
