Warning - Rant Post

November 16th, 2016 at 06:32 am

Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, coffee, Goodbelly.
Lunch: Overnight Oats and Orange juice.
Dinner: Unplanned.

Well we are in the middle of open enrollment at work and of course, the company said there would not be any premium changes. Yay! Oh, but wait, later they come to say that premium stays the same if you are union. If you are under SCA (Service Contract Act), the premium increases.

There has not been a wage increase for SCA contractors for the entire eight years of the Obama Administration. So, while everything else goes up, my salary has stayed the same.

So, with employee and children, the increase amounts to $74.02 per pay period or $148.04 per month. Swell! And we have a new insurance carrier. Luckily my husband has a job and carries his own insurance. Spouse coverage is insanely expensive.

I now have to figure out how to live on $148.04 less per month while trying to get ahead.

    Update to post: I just cancelled my personal training which runs $100.00 per month. I have enough sessions to get me through to January. Now I need to eliminate something equivalent to $48.04. I hope gas doesn't go up!

    Good luck finding the room in your budget to make it work!

    I sure hope you can find something in your budget to make it work. It is very disheartening to learn this for you.
