Re Obamacare: NY grocery chain cuts Heathcare for PT Employees



quote:

Et tu, Wegmans?

The Rochester-based grocer that has been continually lauded for providing health insurance to its part-time workers will no longer offer that benefit.

Until recently, the company voluntarily offered health insurance to employees who worked 20 hours per week or more. Companies are required by law to offer health insurance only to full-time employees who work 30 hours or more per week.

Several Wegmans employees confirmed part-time health benefits had been cut and said the company said the decision was related to changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act.


quote:

Wegmans employs roughly 1,433 full-time employees and 4,304 part-time employees in the Buffalo Niagara region.

I'd guess that ~95% of those employees that voted in the last two elections voted for Obama. Elections have consequences.

They'll just be told it was the Republicans fault, and they'll swallow it up.

God forbid they have to look in a mirror and realize it's their own fault.

Id like to know how many of the PTs actually do the insurance

I'd bet its only 10-20%, but still, they lose those options thanks to this legislation.

But hey, free phones!

How much is it going to suck for these workers when they end up losing their jobs to illegals that get amnesty?

They say it's better for them since they'll get subsidies for their Obamacare. Ya know, subsidies cost no one a dime.
