From ABC: Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to eliminate health insurance coverage for some of its part-time U.S. employees in a move aimed at controlling rising health care costs of the nation's largest private employer.
Why is the 30 hour mark magic? That's the ObamaCare cut off as to who receives employee provided health care and who does not.
About a 1 1/2 years ago, Wal-Mart started cutting many hourly employee hours at the local stores. Many of these employees were considered part time but were still getting about 35-40 hours a week and many were receiving health care from Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart's health insurance actually is pretty good and at a reasonable price but I guess that's gone now for a lot of people.
Now, Wal-Mart cut those hours to just under 30 hours per week for most of the hourly store workers, and it was all because of ObamaCare.
So, who is to blame? ObamaCare is the number 1 culprit because none of this would have happened without ObamaCare being in place.
And yes, I predicted this in January: http://lasvegasbadger.blogspot.com/2014/01/my-predictions-for-year-2014.html
