    Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest employer, announced Monday that 35,000 part-time employees will soon be moved to full-time status, entitling them to the full healthcare benefits that were scheduled to be denied them as a result of Wal-Mart’s efforts to avoid the requirements of Obamacare.
    FORBES

    Interesting article. I think it boils down to customer satisfaction issues and Wal-Mart trying to remain strong in the marketplace.

    For anyone who has not been following the Wal-Mart saga, sales have been sinking dramatically at the retailer as the company has turned to hiring mostly temporary workers (those who must reapply for a job every 180 days) to staff their stores while cutting full-time employees’ hours down to part-time status in order to avoid providing workers with healthcare benefits.

    The result?

    Empty shelves, ridiculously long check-out lines, helpless customers wandering through the electronics section and general disorganization at Wal-Mart store locations.

    This is hardly a recipe for success.

    So with nearly 9000 stores, and over 2,000,000 employees. That means on average just less then 4 people per store will get full time status, or less then half a percent of their workforce will make full time.

    And this is news?

    Thats likely their average monthly promotions.
