Trader Joe's drops health coverage on part-timers



"Part-time" meaning the 30 hours/week as defined by ObamaCare.

quote:

In the memo to staff dated Aug. 30, Trader Joe's CEO Dan Bane said the company will cut part-timers a check for $500 in January and help guide them toward finding a new plan under the Affordable Care Act. The company will continue to offer health coverage to workers who carry 30 hours or more on average.


quote:

"Depending on income you may earn outside of Trader Joe's" -- i.e., another job -- "we believe that with the $500 from Trader Joe's and the tax credits available under the ACA, many of you should be able to obtain health care coverage at very little if any net cost to you," Bane wrote in the memo.


quote:

The company told HuffPost it would not confirm or deny the existence of the memo. In a statement, a spokeswoman said, "We have made some changes to our healthcare coverage that we believe will be a benefit to all Crew Members working in our stores. We are committed to providing all our Crew Members with benefits that are among the best in our industry."

Sometimes I wonder if some of these companies aren't taking the Obama sequester route. As in, they don't need to make the cuts, but doing so is a good excuse to make a profitable business decision while blaming it on something else.

Don't confuse that with me backing Obamacare, at all. I'm sure the majority of these companies had their hand forced with the terrible legislation. Just a thought on the potential few who are taking advantage of it.

I can only hope that when this debate inevitably comes up that the American people remember how they were lied to by the dimocratix party(over and over and over), while they were ramming Obamacare through against their will.

Think about this really hard.

What system, run by the government, is the beacon of success and fully funded without borrowing money?

VA? Nope

SSI? Nope

Medicaid? Nope

Disability? Nope

The problem is, the government is not efficient enough to take care of these things. They don't hold people accountable for frick ups and there is WAY too much bureaucracy involved.

Take ONE of those items, turn it over to a private company that has a CEO like Mark Cuban and watch how well it's run.

Government systems are a joke and the bigger they are, the more of a joke they are.

Because the government is incapable of implementing anything close to an efficient, quality single payer healthcare system.

It would be worse than Obamacare...which is clearly worse than what was before Obamacare...which is clearly worse than what a free market would bear.

Go to medical school and spend four years learning how to treat yourself and family.

That was always the plan with this disaster law. And to think of all the options we left on the table before going nuclear. Like having cross state border policies and having mandatory high deductible plans ensuring everyone holds costs down and has skin in the game. But, the Dems are not about personal responsibility. Give it all to the government.
