Actually when you think about it, employers don't give their employees anything. Everything, and anything you get from your employer is earned. It's just held back, or redirected. Like sick pay, vacation pay, etc. They aren't giving it to you...it's an earned benefit. When I worked as an IT contractor, I could get a lot more money because they didn't provide any benefits, paid vacation, sick pay etc. So instead they just gave me the money up front. Not so bad.
