    So they will have to pay more in WC, training, have poor employee retention, have sick employees and overall spend just as much time managing them all as they would just, you know, pay for the damn insurance because they are bitter that they may have to treat employees well?

    No wonder this country is screwed...

    And, 1 person doing the work of 5, employers will just have to continue to overwork everyone else and wait till they keel over before getting replacement bodies or even robots, i think its employers way of "sticking it to the man", much like our government, corporations and others in charge act like 3rd graders if they dont get there way, i think eventually, employer provided healthcare will slowly die off as more affordable individual rates come on line now that "pre existing condition" will no longer exist in 2014

    Ya think they'd be a wee bit more hirin' if like companies were allowed to hire Mexican illegals for less ?
    Oh wait what about lettin' them get rid of those silly child labor laws There'd be some more hiring them right ?
    Sorry my friend the time has come where we can't afford the crappy healthcare that we gave in this country anymore and compete in the Global Community

    Interesting that the article cites Mark Zandi from Moody's as their source. He and his agency did a spectacular job of assessing the credit worthiness of Lehman Brothers and AIG in 2008, and, the resulting economic prosperity is proof of that.

    Also, if companies reduce hours, wouldn't that force them to hire more employees, thereby reducing the unemployment rate?

    And, I see that Riddler is from Canada. Interesting that they have a lower unemployment rate than the US does. Does that mean the US should a adopt a single payer health care system like Canada has?
