I started off working for a retailer that was right next to a trader joes. What I remember was that Trader Joes employees where always treated
They got paid well, and had health care, AS a result we constantly lost employees to them. It took me getting promoted to management to get health
care in the Industry in general. Places like trader joes, Costco, In and Out, Starbucks. Always stood out as examples of how to treat employee
Benefits, always providing the best, well it looks like thats starting to go away.
After extending health care coverage to many of its part-time employees for years, Trader Joe's has told workers who log fewer than 30 hours a week
that they will need to find insurance on the Obamacare exchanges next year, according to a confidential memo from the grocer's chief executive.
In the memo to staff dated Aug. 30, Trader Joe's CEO Dan Bane said the company will cut part-timers a check for $500 in January and help guide them
toward finding a new plan under the Affordable Care Act. The company will continue to offer health coverage to workers who carry 30 hours or more on
Well at least the company is trying to still do right by employees under the current plan, by giving them 500 to go toward health care annually,
question is, is that enough?
