13. No, don't you let the weasel get away with it
My boss charges me $50 less for insurance, I have $50 more in my pocket. Period.

He also charges me $100 more in other expenses and they aren't going away.

I have a $50 net loss.

If my boss comes in and says he's taking my $50 insurance benefit away, he's actually leaving me with $150 net loss. He's made my sitution MUCH worse.

And, if he says he's doing it so he can figure out the company budget to provide me with something better in a few years... I'm finding a new job.
