Los Angeles Times

A new study finds that 49% of U.S. workers in small businesses were offered health insurance in 2010, down from 58% in 2003.

Firms with 100 or more employees were far more likely to provide health benefits, at 90% in both 2003 and 2010, according to the report from the Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation that does healthcare research.
