Are our benefits going to take a hit with the new M&O contracts for LANL, LLNL, and SNL? Specifically, it seems to DOE is protecting pensioners, but screwing the younger crowd (seed corn) by clarifying that medical benefits can be more easily cut by the M&O to "be inline with market rates".
For example, Honeywell is leading the nation in terms of crappy health benefits. Already, the out of pocket cost to the employee there are $8,000/yr + $550/mo = $14,600/yr. Oh, and if you smoke or have high blood pressure in the annual company exam, they ding you another $2,000. I'm guessing these are the "market rates" that the DOE wants the new M&Os to emulate.
