I’m not sure of the recommended (or if there is one) % of total income one should pay on health insurance, but I do know that the cost and burden of health care on employers has only increased in the last decade. The trend seems to be employers no longer offering health care as a standard benefit…
Probably due to supply and demand. As the video shows health care being offered by employers as a tactic for alluring the best and brightest into a company, when the economy goes down or people looking for work goes up, offering health careas a benefit to employees is less likely and costs still continue to rise.
What are your thoughts on employers offering health care or not offering it?
