    Has anyone looked at the cost of benefits yet? My cost goes up around $1,250 for 2008 without making any changes to what I currently have. This is what our company refers to as "benchmarking."

    Management pays - I pay, and I know it's considerable. And, yes, it keeps rising while value of the coverage gets worse (higher deductables, lifetime maximums, co-pay percentage).

    Everything seems to go up at a healthy rate, except pay increases. With the dollar/hour a year, most hourly positions quickly outmatch my salary.
    What can ya do...

    I'm striving to become a poor illegal alien. Free medical care, free school, free food stamps, free income, NO taxes and no penalty for breaking the law.

    Next time I get pulled over for speeding I'm just gonna say I'm illegal. What's the worst that can happen, sign me up for Obamacare?

    There are no lifetime Maximums anymore.

    Remember the grass isn't always greener on the other side you should have stayed in the union.

    Are you already throwing the towel in it's only 2010.

    Another reason why not to go into management.

    I tend to think that current employees are going to continue to have bene's paid for. It's going to be the people coming in as brand new hires that are going to get the sausage on benefits. And they'll probably find a way to make top scale for drivers take 5 years. UPS is going to be like working for WalMart or Safeway soon. A job for kids just graduating or college students needing something in the meantime, but not even remotely career worthy.
