  •  How much is there to this? (0+ / 0-)

    If the employer is a competitive company who wants great employees they will offer a good benefits package.  Cherry picking benefits is a turn off.

    It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.

      ...there isn't 15% or more effective unemployment, and the entire educated class is not bound hand and foot by their student loans.

      So of course there is a totally competitive labour market in which North Americans, Chinese and Indians all compete for the same jobs on an even keel with their large non-unionised potential employers....for who can pick the most cotton before they starve to death.

      Scripture says "resist not evil", but evil unresisted will prevail.

      seems to feel that "you should be thankful you even have a job!" We are supposed to show up every morning singing hymns of worshipful praise for our kindly, benevolent benefactor-bosses-- and how dare we insist on any sort of benefits or indeed anything beyond what paychecks they see fit to dole out.

      In THIS world the company would be ground under by ruthless competitors who brutally exploit their employees and squeeze every possible nickel's worth of work from them, then throw them away.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
