    Pros

    Good short term benefits, competitive 401K, Dental, etc. This helps employees for the day to day costs with health care

    Cons

    Very poor long term incentive need to improve the approach, the raising of health care costs needs to be less burden on the hourly workers its taking more out of our pay check and the net we have is less take home pay

    Keep health care costs competitive
