Check out this video of a question from last night’s AFL-CIO Presidential Forum.
I’ve had jobs I didn’t leave because of a health care plan.
I’ve had jobs I could stay at only because of Carly’s health care plan.
Health care tied to jobs creates a disincentive for changing jobs. This creates a drag on the economy.
The guy in the video linked to above stayed with the same company for decades due to the health care they provided, and for the health care they would continue to provide him in retirement. In the end, his loyalty screwed him over.
