The workers comp. premium is paid by the employer. Although having been in management I do know that expense is attributed to the hourly expense of the employee.
Usually a service provider favors the one who pays for the service. Although we all know the ones who truly have the cost passed on to them are the consumers, is it possible if a portion, say 1/2 of the premium came from the employee's side would the worker get more just service?
Workers would simply have to demand a higher wage to offset the expense. But the money is already being chared to the consumer in the market place so there's no arguement for the employer to have to charge more for their service.
