In a recent announcement from Amazon-owned Whole Foods Market, medical benefit eligibility requirements will change Jan 1 2020, that could leave as many as 1,900 part-time (just under 2%) workers without coverage.
Employees will have to work at least 30 hours a week to qualify for a healthcare plan, up from the current eligibility requirement of 20 hours.
For disenfranchised Amazon-Whole Foods employees, SurgeryShopper may be able to help you find alternatives to high local prices and steer you to providers that offer discounts for self-pay and financed surgery procedures.
With U.S. unemployment at a record low, it’s amazing that nearly 50% of workers are worried about being laid off.
A recent Harris Poll that surveyed 2,204 U.S. adults for CareerArc raised responses from 1,061 people with jobs, and found that 48 percent of those working have what researchers call “layoff anxiety.” The main reasons workers worry about being fired are:
- They fear a recession is on the horizon (34 percent).
- They hear rumors of layoffs at work (32 percent).
- Their company recently laid off employees (30 percent).
