  •  Kinda bizarre when you think about it. (1+ / 0-)

    Why in the world should a pizza parlor owner have to go about pricing, administering, and paying for private health insurance coverage for his pizza makers and delivery people? Someone who knows pizza and the restaurant business may have zero knowledge of health insurance. The employees should have health insurance, but it makes no sense to me that it should have anything to do with the pizza place and whether or not they work there. That is a vestige of WWII-era thinking, but for today's more transient workforce, it makes little sense. It should be a government duty, period.

      Tying a human right, like health care, to some McJob is really rather sick.

        and get mad whenever some frustrated pizza parlor owner says he's tired of dealing with shit like insurance contracts, deductibles, co-pays, and all the other shit American pizza makers have to deal with. Our anger is misplaced.
