Berkshire Farms Youth center employees talk "STRIKE"

Child care workers are talking "STRIKE". Now it's not just the kids that are hostile. A hostile work environment is stirring also.

The new "director" continues to screw with Union and Non-union employees. This time he is f-in with their HEALTH benefits. Current policy has a $100 dollar deductible + co-pays. The Directors new "NO RESPECT FOR MY EMPLOYEES POLICY" has a WHOPPING $3,000 to $5,000 dollar deductible.

And why is he doing this? He hasn't given a cost of living increase in about 2yrs. He's due to give the increase and it will be retroactive. In order to off-set (NOT GIVE A COST OF LIVING RAISE) he's shoving this "bottom feeders benefit policy" down their throats. This will save him a $1,000 per employee and screws them.
Nice GUY....what does the Director of the Farm care how bad this policy is, he makes ($250,000) TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND A YEAR.
