You ARE paying for your own insurance...why do you think you are earning
half of what the contractors are making. Through my agency, I'm paying about
$220 per month pretax for health insurance. Are you making ONLY $220.00 less
than the contractor? Mine is payed with the first 5 hours of OT in the first
week of the month. Do you even GET OT?

I also have an employee-contributed 401(k) with name-brand mutual funds
(American Century, Fidelity Magellen, and Dreyfus.)

OK, I don't have stock option.. am buying the stock on my own..but I don't
have to be vested to take it out, either.

Don't get me wrong...I'm not trying to play "my daddy can beat up your
daddy", it's just that when I see people accepting the premise of making
less money so that they can pay more for things, I get confused.
