The benefits choice should include "no benefits".

I work from home, I run an in-home daycare. I pay into CPP for pension, but I don't have benefits...except through my hubby and he's non-union and our benefits cost him a bundle and they still suck! $10 co-pay for 'scripts....some cost less than this, so often we just pay the whole amount! Lucky we're healthy!

I work in home and out of home myself. My spouse is the stay at home parent (for now however, his profession is trucker).

I work at a 7\11 for guaranteed income on a part time bases - no union, no benefits.

At home I am a graphics designer and writer full time - I am part of a writer's guild and union, I have out of pocket benefits (not from the guild or union, personal private benefits paid for out of pocket). I am also part of a writer's group within town and work on charity basis for the local no kill animal shelter (just recently acquired client through my graphics designing company).

I guess you could call it, different strokes for different folks. wink.gif

I work f/t and *I* find it physically demanding, but it shouldn't really be. It's only because of some pre existing problems, that it is demanding. It's for sure certainly not at all mentally demanding lol.
We do have a benefits plan, of 80% coverage, after six months there. I don't think there's a pension? Never thought to ask. Non union, there are only like six of us who work there smile.gif
My dh is laid off but normally works f/t, has a union and crappy benefits package it seems. We do pay into a pension there, which is one of the reasons the job is worthwhile - it's a great pension plan, so far anyway.

Physically demanding, and by that I mean always on the go
No union
No benefits although in order to vote I had to put that I had medical, but I don't
I only pay into CPP

I work full time out of the house, mentally demanding, not unionized (used to be), we have both medical and dental benefits, LTD, group life etc., we have OMERS, so we pay a % of our gross income and our employer pays the same.

I am surprised, according to the poll, how many on here work full time outside the home. Where are you all and why don't you post more often?

Too tired to type

After 8 hours at work, and then a full time job when we get home, there just isn't much time to be on here for more than a few minutes a day ( if even that!)
