You are bombastic, ignorant and proud of it. Compensation is compensation, whatever the form. Reduce it, lose good employees.
You’re working a temp job with no benefits and resent anyone else having them, I take it? How Soviet of you. Them’s Russians now, by the way.
Okay, I’ll humor you: you can work for me. I will pay you a basic salary and I will “pay for” your health insurance on top of it; or, I can allow you to buy it yourself, and I will pay you the money I would have spent on your insurance.
Which would you choose? It’s all the same to me.
