    I was just curious who gets benifits with their jobs here. The only benefits I get is that they pay for half of my health insurance.

    nope, not really other than flexible work hours anytime other than tuesday or wednesday. if the Montana legislature changes some laws this year ill get health insurance. right now its rather difficult for a buissiness of 11 employees to afford a group plan.

    We get benefits. Our company has med, dental, and optical, plus 401K with some matching. With 20 employees.

    Companies making money need to kick down to the employees!

    I have a Blue Cross HMO plan through work. The shop where I work employs about 12 people. I pay about $48 a month for insurance. It allowed me to get surgery after putting up with constant pain for 10 years (long story).
    The employers don't offer dental though, and it's too bad cause almost everyone I know has dental problems.
    Actually I haven't seen a dental plan ANYWHERE that's worth a darn. Why can't someone come up with a dental plan that works like a regular medical plan...$20 copay for office visits, etc.

    I gets nothin! Seriously, none so my kids have KidConnection but me and the misses just don't visit the doc. I must admit though I got layed off for a little while and I got insurance from the state and thats how I got my new teeth, thats gone now though. Dental is junk here too, I don't get any from work and friends say the same or they don't enroll the dental cause sometimes it's cheaper to just put the money a month in a jar and use as needed. Hell, my ma works for Physicians Mutual and they have some of the worst for companies who pretend to offer something. I had great insurance when I worked for the Public School System though.

    Capslock, sure this company is making money but not that kind of money. have you ever seen premiums for a group rate for a small group? its unreal, like over $500 per person after you figure in the extra taxes for decent insurance that is worth paying for. that would be $5000 a month, we are probably making that after payroll and taxes and loan payment on building and the shop truck on an average month. leaves very lil for improvements to the buisness. my fiance is the manager of the paper i work at so i do know what money is coming in, the paper cant afford to provide health insurance. BUT there is a law trying to work its way through the state legislature that will allow small companies like us to get in with larger groups. should it pass it would mean we would most likely join with other Montana Newspaper Assosiation members who are in similar situations as us allowing us to be part of a much larger group there for better and more affordable rates. had we been able to purchase a neighboring paper we would have doubled our staff and been able to afford the premiums as it would have knocked them down quite a bit but it got sold out from under us. i have seen all the numbers. its really not feasible for the company to provide health insurance currently but hopefully that will change this year.
