Hi Ho, Hi Ho, to work they may not go

Disney Protestors

Disney Protestors

I am currently unemployed, I plan to make millions blogging (I just cracked myself up as I typed that). The one thing that scares me most is health insurance; it’s amazing how much it is monthly to pay on your own. As we all know healthcare is a big problem for the U.S and hopefully Barack will fix that when he wins. But for now even Disney wants to cut their employees health benefits. Now Disney, you charge $60 to enter, about $10 to park, lunch for 4 is about $50 and then there are snacks and souvenirs…let’s spread the wealth! Ada Briceno, president of the union which represents the workers states “The other hotels around the area all have health care that is provided by the boss and have been able to get wage increases. At the other hotels in the same classification, for the same work, the workers get paid $2 to $3 an hour more”.

I would have to believe in the end that Disney will come through for their employees, I think that’s what Walt would want.

  1. There’s lot’s to blame for high healthcare costs.

    How about attorneys that block tort reform? They force doctors to pay up to $150,000 for malpractice insurance and order needless tests to practice defensive medicine. Their only interest is attorney’s fees.

    How about pharmaceutical companies that are only interested in developing drugs that are marginally better than the meds that they replace (coming off-patent) but cost many times more?

    How about medical professionals that lobby their state association to not allow “their” procedure to be performed by a lower tier medical care worker?

    How about all of the people that abuse alcohol or drugs, drive without a seatbelt, or allow themselves to become obese (thereby doubling the country’s healthcare costs by some estimates)

    The blame goes all around.

  2. Nationalize health care! Stop overspending in the military. Balance the budget and work towards nationalizing health care, which in turn, will drive down costs because the costs will be partially set by the government.
