I get good health care because my employer makes money and without me he wouldn't. It's no secret, if you want better pay and benefits then figure out a way to make yourself worth more. My daughter works part-time at a retail store while she goes to school. She doesn't get any extra benefits because she hasn't earned any.

Running a business is not a charity event. If you don't help your employer make money then you will be out of a job. If you aren't very valuable then you will be paid less.

If you start giving everyone the same pay and benefits then people loose the incentive to work hard and everyone suffers.

If you get free health care someone else has to pay your share. Are you offering to pay the janitor's insurance premiums or are you saying someone else should be responsible?
