It's worked! I'm not the healthiest person in the world, but I try to remember what advice I've received and I try to follow the rules of good health. That let's me sleep better, even when I'm aching and jittery. We all are given only one body and a mind to oversee it.
Economics. Like having enough wherewithal for food and rent and the other things modern living requires. And it circles--on the national scene--into having a job unless retired. In that case, the job is to oversee what income is left in this crumby economic environment.
I hope to say more on the subject of jobs and labor equity before September 7 rolls around. Think of it this way. The president says the nation will not be strong until we have a strong workforce, where companies don't have to worry about healthcare costs. It was wrong to ever have the two linked, but the situation became solidified when labor unions went for perks instead of increased pay. Now they are fighting to maintain both.
My understanding of labor law is fluid, there having been so many changes recently. Just think airline companies going bankrupt and old contracts scrapped. In a generic sense, workers have been on the skids for years, beholden to some "economy" which is code word for a system of robbing those who make/do real things in the interest of those who push paper/digital negotiations around the whole world.
There have been a number of gotcha hangups which have made workers less than citizens in this regard. Could it be possible to make people equal in the eyes of the law with corporations? The Supreme Court has proclaimed that companies can be counted as people when it comes to influencing elections. Right now those who work are not given their equal chance. De-couple health insurance from the job and see how much better things will work. Paternalism is a bad way to run a country.
