And Today in Fuckery…


I can’t even today. Seriously. Whole Foods is cutting medical benefits for part time employees. I just can’t even.

Whole Foods claims that the percentage of its workforce that’ll be affected by the cost-cutting measure, and therefore no longer eligible to purchase employer-provided health care, is less than 2 percent. (That equates to nearly 2,000 people.) One affected employee, who’s worked for Whole Foods for 15 years, told BI they were “in shock,” as the company’s benefits options were why they held on to the job.

So explain to me again how this whole “trickle down” thing works? Isn’t Bezos supposed to share his wealth because he’s making so much money? Instead, it seems that the opposite effect is true.

It’s like the whole “trickle down” thing is a steaming pile of bullshit. Who would have thought? Other than people who have a functional brain, I mean. 🙄

Gotta at least appreciate the snark in this article:

The spokesperson made sure to include a reminder that Whole Foods employees can still enjoy a 20 percent discount on groceries, which, it turns out, will not save your life in the event of a medical emergency.

It won’t help with the resulting medical bills, either. Just saying.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
