"I thanked God every day I had good affordable insurance through my job. It was the only reason I stayed there the last 5 years out of the 13 total I was there."
what percentage of folks can get those kind of jobs, and is that fair to us as a society?
I've never had a job that didn't work that way. I honestly didn't think that was unusual. Is it?
Don't most employers kick in for at least part of their employees premiums? It's a cost of doing business, and is a deducted off profits as a business expense.
I never thought at all that it was about the company getting some kind of special rate, although they do I'm sure.
Every job I've applied for includes insurance in its benefit package.
