SAN FRANCISCO – In 2011, San Diego resident Spike Dolomite found out she had late stage breast cancer. She and her husband were “cash poor and only a miracle could save me,” she said to herself at the time.

Now, like millions of other people across the country, she’s terrified she’ll become uninsured again. On May 4, the House voted 217-213 to gut the ACA, making health insurance unaffordable to an estimated 24 million people nationwide, 4 million of them in California.Details

Before 2014, there were approximately 45 million uninsured people in America. People are uninsured because their employers do not provide health insurance benefit or they are self-employed/unemployed and cannot afford to buy insurance or they have pre-existing conditions that make health insurance too costly.Details

While the modern-day workplace is rife with technology and other advancements that have made it more efficient, productive and profitable from a business standpoint, it seems much of that progress is having an adverse effect on the collective waistline—and well-being in general—of America’s workforce.Details
It’s been well-proven that “social dieting” makes weight loss more fun and successful—especially with programs that include elements like the spirit competition, teamwork, encouragement and, of course, gentle peer pressure (you don’t want to mess things up for your other half, after all). Such programs, like the cash-and-camaraderie-fueled challenges that couples can partake in with HealthyWage, are not only a powerful and effective weight loss method, but also an exciting means to bring a couple closer together…and even subsidize their date night outings with monetary rewards realized for pound shedding success.Details
