Eureka Fair Wage Act, Measure R

Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, plans to begin denying health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week, according to a copy of the company’s policy obtained by The Huffington Post.   Under the policy, slated to take effect in January, Walmart also reserves the right to eliminate health care coverage for certain workers if their average workweek dips below 30 hours — something that happens with regularity and at the direction of company managers.

The country is moving more and more toward entitlements and Wal Mart is like the antithesis of what is wrong with both the left and right. They exhibit the corporate greed that the left cries about. They obviously don’t care much about their workers and their families. At the same time they are perpetuating the welfare/entitlement state that the right is concerned about. This company is like a finely shined politician. They play both sides. They use anything they can to their advantage. Behind closed doors they are dirty, but… They make themselves look so grand by “giving” to the community. In the end it’s the community that pays the taxes to support a large percentage of their workers that are perpetually on government benefits. I live in a small town and it is somewhat unrealistic for me to boycott Wal Mart. But every day I get closer and closer to doing just that. I believe in American business but I don’t believe in companies that abuse American workers and the entire system.
