hello all.

i am the office manager at a restaurant in indianapolis, and i'm trying to encourage our employees to start some personal long-term investing program for themselves. my boss is not very interested in doing any kind of company-based program because of the high turn-over rate of employees, as well as the small paycheck ammounts of waitresses. (waitresses earn primarily through their tips) i already have several people interested in starting something on their own, with the promise that i will help them get started. here's my question:

everyone is looking for a simple program that does automatic withdrawls from their checking accounts on either a weekly or monthly basis, and they need something that they can manage themselves, without the help of me, should they decide to leave the restaurant. some are interested in IRAs, and some are looking for more risk/better return. should i go through a deep-discount broker, or should i go through one of the bigger guys? does anyone have any suggestions on what to set them up with?

feel free to email at crall@kiva.net

thanks in advance,
