County employees rise up over high insurance premiums

In Alabama, 600 employees of Mobile county government filed grievances with the Mobile County Commission this week, citing complaints of high health insurance costs, the Lagniappe Weekly reported. The employees say they hope to resolve this problem through meetings with their local officials and the local sheriff's office. One employee, commenting on talks to resolve the issue, said the commissioners "hear us loud and clear, but no one is speaking back." Article
