Finding out what’s in it: Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, will be eliminating healthcare coverage to its part time employees due to Obamacare.

Essentially, the company is trying to avoid the high costs imposed by Obamacare by dropping coverage for anyone working 30 hours or less, and then moving more employees into that category when possible. As I noted before, this idiotic law is forcing us to be a nation of part time workers.

    I can see the Administration just changing the law to start coverage at 30 hours instead of 40. Eventually moving the bar all the way down to just covering all employees no matter how few hours they work.

    I think it is already at 30 hours.
