Let’s face it honey, I’m older than you and got more Insurance. This was a great quote from Fried Green Tomatoes. loved that movie. Not sure about the tomatoes. I wonder if we are going the way of the Whistle Stop Cafe?
Is it really true though, that most that are older have more insurance? According to the news etc: It would seem we are about to have a major crisis with many (not just older folks) losing their insurance due to job layoffs, companies taking away their pensions as well as health plans. Saddens me to think that the next generation won’t be as well off as their parents if we may believe all we hear and read.
So what do you think about companies that don’t honor their commitment to their employees? After all, many probably chose to stay with them precisely for those benefits. That’s one reason I wanted to work for myself, didnt really believe in the Gold watch.
I remember when the Zenith decided to go to Mexico for cheaper labor. Best T.V. ever had, swore I wouldnt buy another one because they certainly didnt lower prices here and while I didnt know anybody personally that worked there, I felt it was the wave of the future. Sure enough, along came NAFTA, Uhmmm…how much & what is actually made here anymore? We got automobile factories, many parts are overseas however. Even our beloved Proud American made Harley is now elsewhere too. (think they have one factory here, not 100% on that) I dunno, I guess I can eat my imported Chinese Seafood, Wear my Tennis shoes from India, my jewelry from Wherever…I better get with the program and become a distinguished citizen of the world.
How about you? Do you believe there is security in the workplace? Would you rather work for yourself and make your own security?
