Health Benefits & Chicken McNuggets

by

I hate how McDonald’s has to attract workers in a sluggish economy in West Virginia with the promise of $7.50/hr and benefits. I wonder how many chicken mcnuggets it takes to cover an average employee’s total compensation package?

You will get sick at some point in your life, even if you have low cholesterol and avoid bacon double cheeseburgers and McFlurries. You will hurt yourself. You will have a baby. You will have a tumor. Your gums will bleed. You will have a moment in your life where you need serious medical attention because someone accidentally stabbed you with a fork.

Why are employers locked in this masochistic cycle of offering self-insured policies that are priced according risk?

We’re all risky. We’re all human. We’ll all get sick and die — and it’s expensive.
