Half a million San Diego County residents are living without any health insurance, and most of them are in working families. In a largely employer-based insurance system, businesses that don’t pay for employees’ coverage are competing unfairly against those that do. Many low-wage industries especially are shirking their responsibility. Employers benefit from a healthy workforce and stable community, and any realistic reform plan must insist they pay their share.

Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.

~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
