Ifstream using Class private variables

So I am trying to read in a file using private class variables. There might be another way to do this, but this is what I could think of. Note, its my first project using classes and private and public members. Was I on the right path atleast? I keep getting an error for the int main function. How can I fix it?
This is my main:

11
12

#include "Record.h"
#include <sstream>

int main ()
{	
	Record employee;

	ifstream myFile;
	myFile.open("Project 3.dat");
	string str;
	int i=0;
	
	if (myFile.is_open())
	{
		while (getline(myFile, str))
		{
			istringstream ss(str);
			ss >> employee.set_name(str) >> 
              employee.set_id(stoi(str)) >> employee.set_rate(stoi(str)) >> 
                         employee.set_hoursWorked(str);
		}
	}
	
	return 0;
}


This is my header file:

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string> 
using namespace std;

class Record
{
	private:
			string name;
			int id;
			double rate;
			double hours;
	public: 
			Record();
			Record (string n, int empid, double hourlyRate, double hoursWorked); // constructor
			
			void read_data_from_file();
			double calculate_wage();
			void print_data();
			
			/* ASETTERS AND GETTERS */			
			void set_name (string n);
			string get_name();
			
			void set_id (int empid);
			int get_id();
			
			void set_rate (double hourlyRate);
			double get_rate();
			
			void set_hoursWorked(double hoursWorked);
			double get_hoursWorked();
			/* END OF SETTERS AND GETTERS */			
};

istringstream ss(str);
ss >> employee.get_name(str) >> employee.get_id(stoi(str)) >> employee.get_rate(stoi(str)) >> employee.get_hoursWorked(stoi(str));
