It's a good thing that premiums haven't gone up a similar amount every other year, or that statement would seem suspect.
You're talking to the guy that has market-ticker.org as a reference for everything he cites. I'm not going to go bashing a site though. Go give it a peek. There are lot of suspect statements to go around. Something tells me he's been getting his info from limited, biased sources.
But enjoying physically and psychologically harmful working conditions day after day and believing (correctly or otherwise) that there's no way out is likely more harmful than hearing one lie about how pretty your eyes are.
You think that's bad, join the military. Especially a rating or MOS you don't want to do. That's physically and psychologically harmful with no way out. Hell, the Thai women I met in the middle east were there on contract with their caretakers. Both are contractually obligated professions that some would deem unfit for human work. Who are you to judge?
One good suit is worth a thousand resumes.
