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.
