“As Director Human Resources of Berner International LLC, it is difficult to understand the opposition to having a national family and medical leave insurance program. Finding and retaining the best and brightest employees is a time consuming and costly function of running a business. To offer benefits that support employees and their families creates a partnership where both employer and employee have a sense of stability, appreciation, and security; employees are more productive in the workplace and healthier in their personal lives; and U.S. companies are strong and profitable. Berner is the first U.S. manufacturer of air curtains. Air curtains essentially create an air door across an open doorway that keeps cold air on the inside and warm air on the outside in the summer, and vice versa in the winter, saving energy and creating healthy, comfortable environments. Located in New Castle, Pennsylvania, Berner has become an employer of choice in the region, grown to over 90 employees and continues to offer fully paid health benefits to all full-time employees.”
