According to a shocking new report out this week, the cost of employer-sponsored healthcare coverage has risen 121% since 1999, meaning that Millennials in the job market today are paying more than double what their parents had to pay for healthcare when they were growing up. Wages, on the other hand, have only increased by about 13% in that same amount of time. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
