You may have seen me on the news, talking about the “Health Care Reform” bill. I’m not a doctor, but I’m sure you know what’s being proposed. It’s time for me to explain what the bill does/doesn’t do.
The bill does NOT create a single job for the average person in the health care industry.
The bill DOES, however, create a minimum wage for all health care workers. The minimum wage is $15.50 per hour. This does NOT include the cost of food, housing, and transportation. So the bill is only costing the average person an average of $8.50 an hour. When you combine this with the cost of health care, you end up with a bill of $17,000 per year.
While this is a small amount for most people, it’s not insignificant. The average health care worker has a family of four to pay for health care. While the bill does not create a single job for the average person in the health care industry, it does create a number of jobs that will create good paying jobs. These jobs should be plentiful based on the bill.
The health care industry is a $13 billion dollar industry in the United States. If that number continues to grow at the same rate, it will be the largest single industry in America by 2018. This would mean a bill of 15,000 per year for every person in the United States. That’s over double the average health care worker’s annual wage.
The average person who works at a health care provider would be paid 5.6 times the average worker at a hospital, and 5.4 times the average person working in an emergency department. I think we can all agree that we want to avoid the health care industry spending its money on the people and doctors who will create jobs.
This is especially true in this economy. If we want to keep health care costs low and high quality care in the hands of those who need it, we have to do something like this.
I think the health care industry is in a pretty good shape right now. It’s not a perfect industry, but it does have ways of keeping costs low and high quality care in the hands of those who need it. I hope that this is a sign that things are on the right track for the future.
It’s not surprising to find that the health care industry is doing well, but it is not the only health care industry to be doing well. I think we have a lot more to look forward to as a society. We are not exactly “out of the woods” yet, but we are definitely better off. We are not perfect, but we are far from being in the dark ages.
In the meantime, I’m glad to see that the industry is taking steps to improve itself. For instance, there is now a website called “Healthcare.gov” which allows you to find a doctor or health care provider near you. If you click on the healthcare.gov site, you will be taken to the Healthcare.gov site where you can actually go to get a quote from a provider.
