For our location alone we budgeted $2.1M to cover the company's portion of 265 employees health insurance cost. Here's a sobering thought, that will probably one day come to fruition but of course no one wants to be the first, instead of paying $2.1M why not just pay the fine of $1K per employee and put the $1.8M back in the company's pocket. Here's how staggering that number is for the company I work for - as whole the company has 30K employees, so roughly $240M a year in health ins cost - $1,000 fine per employee is $30M - thats more than $200M back in the stockholders pocket, a greater dividend. It will come sooner than later unless they fine companies more but then again who can afford to line Congress's pockets the way big business can.
