(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) I actually do feel mildly sorry for whoever had to write the line of nonsense below, though. I mean, I understand why Target has to drop coverage for part-timers (they’re probably sweating bullets trying to figure out how to pay for the looming coverage hikes for the full-time employees*), but it’s a heck of a thing when circumstances require you to tell a lie this bald-faced:
In a blog post on the company’s website, Jodee Kozlak, the executive vice president of human resources, framed it as a positive development for part-time employees of the company.
“The Health Insurance Marketplaces provides new options for healthcare coverage that we believe our part-time members may prefer,” she wrote. “In fact, by offering them insurance, we could actually disqualify many of them from being eligible for newly available subsidies that could reduce their overall health insurance expense.”
