Benefits Programs –conten– Paper details: After receiving a positive response from StopNShopToday, Inc. management about the recommendations for the incentives and performance appraisal projects, the HR generalist has been assigned a project that will prove to be very challenging: assessing the competitiveness of the company benefits package. The owners of StopNShopToday, Inc. are very concerned about the escalation of health insurance costs. When they started the business in 1991, benefit costs were much less and employees were happier with what the company provided. Now, however, the owners regularly hear employee complaints about the growing health insurance premiums they pay. In addition, the owners are tired of employees always requesting that they be allowed to take a greater number of paid personal absence days. Scheduling employee vacations and holidays is difficult because the company’s store locations are open all day and every day, except for Christmas and New Year’s day. As a result, the owners want to compare StopNShopToday, Inc.’s benefits package with other similar companies. They intend to use these facts to make better decisions and communicate their problems more accurately to employees. As the HR generalist, you quickly realize that the corporation had never quantified the total costs of benefits. After 1 month of exhaustive review of benefits bills and payroll records, you have summarized the corporate compensation and benefits costs as seen in th??????e following: Percent of Total Compensation: ?Total wages and salaries: 50% ?Total benefits costs: 25% ?Paid leave: 5% ?Supplemental leave: 2% ?Insurance: 6% ?Retirement and savings: 2% ?Legally required benefits: 10% ?Other benefits: 0% With this information, you will now attempt an external benefits comparison. To get benefits data from other companies, review the following data from the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some of the most pertinent survey results are in Appendix A. Click here to view the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics 2005 data. Click here to view the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics 1986?2001 data. Prepare a comparison of the compensation and benefits costs that you will deliver to the company’s owners. Create at least 1 chart to visually depict the most relevant data. Address the issues of greatest concern to the owners. Provide several paragraphs to summarize your findings. Use Appendix A or additional data provided in the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics documents.

Question
Using the article, “Obama Finds Reality is Messy” on page 326-327 in the AM GOV textbook by Losco and Baker, write an essay in the following format:

Your paper should have an introduction, body and conclusion. In the introduction you need to include the name of the article which you are responding to and provide a thesis statement that contains your overall feelings about the article (maybe you can say why you chose that article and what you have learned from the article).

In the body I would first like for you to first briefly summarize the article and then discuss what you think was the author?s motivation was for writing the article (why do you think they wrote the article?). Then for the rest of the paper you need to answer the discussion questions provided at the end of the article. At the beginning of each of your answer you need to make sure you indicate which question you are responding to by restating the question, (for example When considering ?? When asked ?..One may question?.).

Then do not forget to include a conclusion, which summarizes your reflection essay.

The questions to be answered in the paper are:
1. How would you rate president Obama’s first two years in office? What impact does his domestic and foreign policy have on this overall grade?
2. Explain the analogy the article makes between the health care bill and a sausage. What is the author saying about legislative process?
3. Do voters expect too much from the president? Is there any way Obama could have delivered the kind of change disillusioned Democrats were expecting when they elected him?
