The trouble with Vegas
Here’s an ironic story –pharmacy benefits manager and mail order pharmacy Medco Health Solutions is facing a labor action from its pharmacy technicians in Las Vegas who object to changes in their health care benefits. The changes would shift more of the burden of health care costs onto the workers. Medco is trying to take the initiative by threatening a lockout.
Las Vegas is a tough labor market. Pharmacy techs have other good options for employment, including working at the casinos. They may have better luck there than in getting Medco management to change its mind.
