The real value of compensation...

The cost of Health insurance for employers is terrifying. Put another way, an employee even at the entry level positions with health insurance, burden and wage is about $45, 000 per year.

For example: a $12.00 wage costs on average 1.2% for burden or 14.40 per hour. Add a health plan at $15,000 per year, equaling about $7.21 per hour. If the math is correct, that comes to 21.61 per hour x 2080hrs = Just shy of $45,000 per year. That does not include the cost of recruiting, turnover, 401K contributions or other perks or bonuses. Maybe the cost using a staffing company is not so bad at a 1.6 markup...
