I just got a $6000 dollar check to buy my own yearly medical coverage that got yanked. It was $4000 after they taxed it. I also received a $1,100
signing bonus, after taxes was $400.
The new insurance I purchase myself has a $2000 or more deductible we must pay 1st. My raise is $1200 a year.
So with this all....I can pay premiums barely for my family monthly ($300-400 a month)...have to pay $2000 deductibles myself, buy my own
prescriptions for heart meds...and my "raise" gives me $1200 more a yr....so Ill be $800 short taking all this when it settles down.
The new taxes cut it all further.
Yes...this is a Union job at one of the Big Three auto makers in Michigan US in Security/ERT Response Team.
Im blessed to even have a job and to be working.
But, I'd like at least a kiss before I get screwed.......
