Another example of brilliant corporate mentality

There is a Peoria-area employer (who shall remain nameless) that has begun to advertise job openings. Their big "hook" for snagging applicants is touting their excellent benefits, which include their insurance plan.

Sounds great, huh?

Yea. It's a good deal. The starting wage for a 40 hour work week will not only cover the cost of the employee's portion of the health insurance, it'll allow that employee to purchase...oh....maybe 20 bucks worth of groceries. Every other week.

All the employee will hafta worry about is finding a place to put his or her cardboard box where they won't be rousted by the cops and which bus to catch to get to work.

Ya know what the real kicker is, though, doncha? The employer will wonder why they can't get decent applicants.
