Target Dropping Insurance for Part-Time Workers

I hate to keep blogging these ♡bamaCare!!! horror stories, but there’s just no end to them — you should see the ones I don’t have time or space for. Anyway, here’s the latest from one of America’s major retailers:

Target Corp. said it will end health insurance for part-time employees, joining Trader Joe’s Co., Home Depot Inc. and other retailers that have scaled back benefits in response to changes from Obamacare.

About 10 percent of Target’s part-time employees, defined as those working fewer than 30 hours a week, use the company’s health plans now, according to an announcement posted today on the Minneapolis-based company’s website. Target said it would pay $500 to part-timers losing coverage and a consulting firm will help workers sign up for new Obamacare plans.

The quasi-private consultants always seem to eek out a win, don’t they?

What I’d like to know (but haven’t been able to find) is what percentage of Target’s employees were part-timers two or three years ago. And what that percentage becomes next year.
