The Health Benefits That Cut Your Pay

Lest we forget, no one gets something for nothing, including healthcare. Its fact, not politics: Employers base how much they can afford to pay employees on how much money the company has available to cover those costs. They include into those costs salaries and benefits – including health care. If health care costs more, salaries will be less, meaning it is essentially employees, not employers who at the end of the day pay for healthcare. It’s what even those employee might expect when on the other side of the equation as shareholders. Lest we forget.
