The latest ObamaCare casualty: Wegmans grocery employees
human events ^ | july 11, 2013 | John Hayward

Posted on 07/11/2013 2:02:02 PM PDT by lowbridge

At least they aren’t losing their jobs, like so many others in this ObamaCare-ravaged job market, but it looks like the part-time employees of Wegmans grocery stores will be losing their previously excellent health care, per U.S. News & World Report:

A guy who takes a one hundred million dollar vacation feels it’s right to turn the United States into a nation of part-timers.And ObamaPhone owners.

gee shocker.

obama knew this would occur. it helps to make capitalism evil, government good. it makes people clamor for government to “intervene”.

problem is the problem was created on purpose by government so that they could play the hero and “intervene” against the framed, “evil” capitalists. who only care about money and exploiting their workers.

Used to be considered one of the Best Workplaces in America due to their very nice benefits. I know people who turned down more lucrative jobs elsewhere to stay in Upstate New York with them for that reason.

Not anymore.

Sad. I’ve never run into an incompetent or nasty Wegman’s employee.

Time to slash the travel budget for Obama & his family. No more traveling of any kind. The Obamas stay in DC, spend holidays at Camp David and no campaigning, he’s supposedly the President of the United States of America not the United Democrats of America.

You have a point: Wegman’s is very expensive. It’s why I don’t get there too often but kinda love what I do buy. And the sales/cashiers are wonderful. On the other hand, food prices are out of control - which I believe this administration promotes.

Wegmans prices aren’t the best around, but the one I go to is mobbed on any given Saturday morning and pretty busy anytime I go there. They’re doing something right. Plenty of help....never encountered any attitude from an employee ever.

Wegmans is impossible on a weekend! And they sometimes run out of produce then. I try to go early in the middle of the week. Their employees are great.

This is a store with so many specialty items you must know how to shop there.

I have been their shopper since Grade School in Rochester NY. When I retired and went to Florida I wanted to cry each shopping day! Publix and Winn Dixie do not compare!

You must be an informed shopper and choose your needed items first. Buy extra when things are on sale, often at very low “Loss Leader” prices. Then as you cruise the store many temptations will be put before you! I always took those ideas as a cooking school and then created things like them myself.

Buying one special item each trip will make you “feel good” about the chore of shopping. Can you put a price on that?

I have never had a bad Wegmans brand product and they are as low cost as all other store brands...other stores are not all GOOD!! Canned vegetables at 37 cents a can...buy a case!

I missed Wegmans for almost 20 years until their move to Virginia where I spend part of the year with family.

Now I am happy and plan lots of shopping to stock up for the return to FL...

I know a husband & wife who own a small business in our town. The husband went to work p/t for Wegmen’s specifically for the healthcare benefits.

They are two-time Obama voters. Nice people and I don’t wish them ill, but.... it’s hard not to feel a little bit of schadenfreude.

Wegmans is great. But I don’t like that most of their items are “Wegmans” rather than a mix of different companies. This has seemed to increase over the years. My favorite bit is the “International” section, where you can buy all the wonderful French & British items. I also like the meat section and the fish section. It’s a good store!

I must opine that female Wegmans shoppers look like supermodels. It is worth paying a nickel more for a pack of hotdogs just for the scenery.
