I am disturbed, however, that one cost-cutting measure being considered is to deny employees state retirement benefits. The care center is asking for the community to support them. I do, but I am asking them to, in turn, support the workers in this community. Offering good benefits may not be the cheapest thing to do, but it is the right thing to do.
Retirement benefits are being cut all over this country as they are deemed too expensive. Social Security benefits are also under attack. What will become of our aging population in the years to come?
A large employer such as the care center makes most of its money off of “state” benefits such as Medicaid and yet they want to save money by taking away state benefits for employees? Please support your employees with solid benefit packages.
