    in some ways to the system used by some trade unions. My nephew is an ironworker, and their benefits are administered by the union. They work out of the union hall for whatever employer wants to hire them. The employer pays a comprehensive hourly wage, the union buys health insurance, administers the retirement fund, and so forth. The employer doesn't have to bother with any of it. Workers see a deduction on their pay stub for the cost of their benefits.
