One possible reason your benefits package at work might be shrinking

In this economy, it is difficult for employers to keep providing great benefits.  Check out this email from Mikey’s Funnies. It just might explain why the benefits package from your employer isn’t really great and might even be shrinking.


A woman, searching for a job, inquired about the benefits. The Personnel Manager informed her they had group health and life insurance, but the costs were deducted from the employee’s pay.

She said, “My last employer had full health coverage, as well as five years salary for life insurance and a month’s sick leave AND they paid the full premiums.”

“I can’t help but asking madam why you would leave a job with such benefits,” the interviewer replied.

The woman shrugged her shoulders and said, “The company went bankrupt.”


I guess they couldn’t afford that gold-plated benefits plan, huh?

Keep in mind that health insurance costs are going up 10% or 15% a year.

You can find this joke at many places on the ‘net.  Oldest date I find is 4 years ago, but I saw it here first, so that’s where I’ll credit it:


Yeah, you can send this Funny to anybody you want. And, if you’re REAL nice, you’ll tell them where you got it!
