About 10% of my pay is taken (they match dollar for dollar) for the state retirement system. If the market goes to shit, our fund takes a hit, and they increase the amount we have to pay. So the economy is down, but you have to pay out more. Kinda sucks.

Not optional either. I can't say "Nah I don't want to participate, let me keep the money." Can't tell them how it's invested either. They take it, they do with it as they will, and that's that.
