Miami Herald, October 2, 2008

Healthcare premiums in Florida climbed 3.6 times faster than workers' earnings over seven years, according to a report released by Families USA, a national organization for healthcare consumers. The report found that from 2000 to 2007, total premiums per worker in employer-based coverage increased 72%, from $6,812 to $11,720. The worker's share of that climbed 94%, from $1,969 to $3,821 per year. Meanwhile, a Florida worker's earnings increased only 20.2% over the seven years, according to the study.
