Benefits of the job
Katherine Marshall

Two-thirds of employees are offered at least one employer-sponsored insurance—extended medical, dental, or life/disability. Many employers offered other benefits as well: pensions or retirement savings plans; profit-sharing or stock-ownership plans; wellness or employee assistance programs; or other ad hoc benefits. These benefits are strongly associated with other indicators of good jobs.

Health-related insurance for the self-employed
Ernest B. Akyeampong and Deborah Sussman

Compared with employees, the self-employed are less likely to be covered by extended health, dental or disability insurance plans. Some self-employed acquire coverage through a spouse or close relative, others must pay or do without.
