    We got a 2.5% raise this year the insurance went up $2-$8 depending on plan plus they doubled contribution to 4% so actually I got a 4.5% raise. I'll take that. Some of us can do math but for those who can't. Make $100k plus 4.5% means you got a raise of $4500, take $8 a week extra for insurance means they took back $416. I think we did ok with that extra $4086. (I realize some don't make what I make as a linehaul driver but you can do the math for yourself with your own wages I bet it still works out in your favor.)

    OMG ! Stop that right now. You are not allowed to think for yourself. You are only allowed to believe what these trolls insist you believe.

    How come every time someone bring this up we get buried in freight. Last night they parked 3 of my barns load against the Fence at one of our FAC.

    I agree with your math, but for some who see a lot of doctors, the co-pays for primary and specialist also went up. Still works out in our favor overall, just don’t forget the details.

    Point noted. And I am not sitting here with a spoon just waiting to eat the company crap. From what we used to have for insurance, what we have now sucks but I know alot of people who work for big companies that pay more in premiums and have crappier coverage. I say that not to absolve the company but to bring relativity to our microcosm

    My wife is thinking about working for the post office full time next month which means she will be offered insurance. Right now it looks like our insurance is better and cheaper even after I pay the $35/week surcharge. Like you said (even though I don’t like to admit it and I’m not a look-aid drinker), our insurance isn’t the worst. I’m kind of surprised at what’s offered at the post office, coverage and price wise.

    One major illness and you will find out how expensive and lacking the coverage has become and it will easily outpace the raise you got last year. God forbid.
    The post office offers many type of medical plans to each employee from the bare minimum to Cadillac plans and it’s the employees choice in to which one they want. ( I also have a family member who works for USPS.) you have to be more specific into which one she participates in which plan option your comparing to make a fair comparison.
