Wal-Mart: Save Money. Screw Employees

Wal-Mart is at it again. According to the Associated Press Wal-Mart is slashing its health care coverage for part-time employees and jacking up its premiums for its full-time employees.

Of course, Wal-Mart isn’t alone in screwing its employees. AP reported that according to the insurance company Kaiser only 42% of companies offer health care coverage to their part-time workers. It’s even worse if the employee is in retail because according to Mercer only 28% of those companies offer health care coverage.

Health care is a universal human right. It’s that simple.
