Don't let the door hit your partner on the way out, as the treatment would be costly

by Jeremy Hooper

   Rob Carpick (pic.), an associate professor of engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has announced that he's leaving the school for a job at the University of Pennsylvania, because the latter offers health insurance benefits for his domestic partner and the former does not.

Oh, and because their cafeteria is so much better. Seriously, Penn's tater tots are just legendary!

UW-M is the only school in the Big Ten that doesn't offer DP benefits and they have lost several faculty members because of this. Oh, but what a service the state's provided for the school's history department by adopting a health insurance model seemingly pulled from an earlier century.

No benefits? No researcher: UW won't insure his domestic partner [AP via Wisconsin State Journal]
