From the Email In Box:
Gramps, the City Council Members get Health Care Coverage and they work part time.
My question is are the City's Part Time Employees covered by Medical / Health Care Insurance at the same level?
I don't know all the facts however, I have read job announcements that indicate that some Part Time Employees are not covered, and some have a larger contribution for the insurance if they opt in to a insurance plan the city only covers a portion of the coverage.
Is this fair.. No... it is an example of a elitist attitude that the Management Deserves better health than the workers. I can not think of a time where the opposite is more true. The people who work as crossing guards, child care and other "Part Time" Exempt jobs in the city, are more exposed to flu and colds and other medical risks in their jobs than the Council Members. They should be covered long before the City Council Members.
