I don't perceive the UPS move as negative or an employer behaving badly. It is what needs to happen. The current situation is another 'cost-shift' that needs to be eliminated. Why does UPS need to pay for health coverage of a spouse who works at Denny's or some employer who skates by without offering insurance? Don't most dual-income families go through the math to determine whether their insurance should be through the husband or wife? An employer will pick up new covered lives as your employee spouse gets offloaded by the other employer. I contend it's a good thing. The US has chosen employer-based coverage, so employers should not take care of other employer's employees! It's that simple.
