Insurance tops income from minimum wage.

The survey, which focused on employer-sponsored health insurance plans, noted that since 2000 premiums for family coverage have gone up 73 percent. During the same period, wages rose just 15 percent.

Today, the average cost of annual premiums for family coverage is now $10,880, topping the $10,712 in gross earnings a full-time minimum wage worker would make.
