But the workers of Amerika, we get ripped off and HAVE TO PAY TO GET RIPPED OFF.BURGERVILLE GIVES BETTER INSURANCE THAN THAN TRIMESS.
Only about 3% of Burgerville's hourly workers were enrolled, said Chief Executive Jeff Harvey. Low enrollment in health plans is common among restaurants, where operators typically don't spend enough on insurance to keep employee premiums affordable, said Victor Fernandez, a senior analyst for People Report.
In absorbing more of the costs, Burgerville's annual health-care bill nearly doubled, to $4.1 million from $2.1 million. But company leaders figured the move would boost recruiting and retention.
Under Burgerville's plan, individual hourly workers can enroll in a health-maintenance organization for $15 a month, with no deductible. A worker and spouse pay $30 monthly; family plans cost $90. Salaried employees, whose plans didn't change significantly, pay $84 a month for individual and $240 monthly for family coverage, and have an annual deductible of $500.
