    He never said he owned, or even lived in a house in the neighborhood. Probably some park benches near by and maybe even a bridge to provide shelter.

    Maybe UHC is the Medicaid provider in NC? They wouldn't cover his methadone this month so he's upset?

    Quit picking on maddalone!
    Maybe they are best friends with the CFO's wife! Maybe (and probably) they know a LOT more than you guys about the situation.

    According to Weiss (the financial experts), UHC has been one of the BEST stock picks out there...GREAT profits.

    UHC has always been overpriced in Texas. UHC customers ARE paying for their outstanding profits & great upper-management benefit packages. CEO's pull in their million-dollar packages while they lay off employees in times like this. There IS a greed factor involved.

    In my humble opinion, NO employee is worth millions. If my math is correct, a $1 million salary = approx $500/hour.
    Maddalone is MAD about greed & waste in our system. I don't blame him/her.

    What someone earns is of no concern to anyone except debtors. Employees are paid based on what the person who hired them believes they are worth.

    Class warfare and petty jealousy is the sign of a small mind.

    Hate the GAME not the PLAYER!

    Nepotism at it's finest. But be real, if you are a c-level ex at any company, wouldn't you rather have your daughter as an employee? One less person you got to worry about suing you, angling for a raise....sexual harassment suits..

    Firstly, the government needs to take sufficient effort to lower down the inflation rate so that wages can remain at similar level. In addition to this, the government needs to initiate program so that more skilled health care staff including nurses, physician and technician to health care sector. It will lower down the demand of the staff which will lower down the high rise wages. In short, health care agencies is require maintain an equilibrium in demand and supply (Bodenheimer & Fernandez, 2005).

The US agencies is require to refocus on labor management, needs to manage current employed physicians, and lastly, the US health care agencies is require to adaptation to changing risk and reimbursement model and health care sector is require to monitor certain patient types (Bodenheimer & Fernandez, 2005).
