Employees want health coverage from employers

A new poll conducted by Harris Interactive looks at the attitudes of American workers toward their health coverage and finds that if forced to make a choice, most would forego a raise rather than lose access to employer-provided benefits.

As employers cut back on their benefits and move employees into high-deductible health plans, employees' level of concern over health benefits seems to be rising.
