Cheaper To Layoff Staff Than Pay For Health Insurance

Editor:

The new health care bill requires an employer with at least 50 employees to provide them insurance.

If I was an employer, it would be cheaper for me to lay off one or two individuals to bring my work force to 49.

Then I wouldn’t have to pay for their insurance and those I laid off would be out of work and look for their own health plan.
