palin's good union job got her insurance
from think progress:
Palin is right to credit her and her husband’s “good union jobs” with securing her family health insurance coverage. In fact, as SEIU notes, “workers in unions…are 63 percent more likely to have employer-provided health insurance” than non-union workers. Further, “union families pay 43% less for family coverage than nonunion families” and the coverage that union workers receive is “far more comprehensive.” Too bad Palin has done nothing to actually represent union interests.
