A younger workforce means they pay less for their health insurance.
This is one of the reasons why it would be good to decouple health insurance from employment.

I know, right? Medicare for all!
Eliminate another employee benefit?
I know of a small company whose business model is based on hiring young staff right out of school and then keeping them around for a few years until they lost interest or get impatient with the lack of career progression and move on. They dont put this in writing, but their goal is to lose these younger employees before they reach the age of 26 or 27 and are therefore no longer covered under their parents medical insurance. Pretty smart, eh?
Hmmm... I'm not at all sure I agree with that.. The only thing I think works is a free and open marketplace.. But you gota make sure nobody is in cahoots with one another... If the markets are rigged it can't work....
#8 Yes. More older people would stay employed.
