At least they gave them a little something upon being dumped.
Check it out:
It’s not surprising that discount retailer Target is canceling health coverage for its part-time employees and dumping them into the hellish ObamaCare exchanges. It makes all the sense in the world for every employer in their position to do the same thing. The Affordable Care Act was designed to encourage it. And kudos to Target for giving affected employees an extra $500 apiece to help them make the transition.
I’d like to invite ObamaCare apologists to stand up and cheer as a huge corporation saves itself a pile of money by discontinuing benefits and passing those costs along to taxpayers, who will now be covering subsidies and credits for the 36,000 people Target used to insure. There will be a lot more to come, both from this company and other employers.
