Is this how it’s suppose to work?
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.
As it turns out, this can be better for the workers, in that they’ll now be eligible for the government subsidy and may get better coverage. But, then, because the government is so incompetent in the rollout of this onerous law, anyone can claim the subsidy.
Well played, leftards. In this case, we’ve managed to fix what wasn’t broken, just like we all said would happen. Lunatics.
