Issue Brief: The Wage Squeeze and Higher Health Care Costs
Economic Policy Institute Link to more items from this source
Jan. 31, 2006

Excerpt: According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 47% of workers did not participate in employer-provided health care benefit plans in 2005 (see Figure B). Thus, there is no health care squeeze that would explain the wage losses of nearly half the workforce. In addition, the BLS data show that among workers whose average wage was less than $15 per hour last year, only 39% participated in employer-provided health plans.
