World’s richest man cuts health benefits for 1,900 Whole Foods workers

Posted by in categories: food, health

Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, is cutting health benefits for part-time workers at Whole Foods. The move will leave 1,900 people without health insurance.

The cuts don’t affect full-time employees, but will hurt those who work around 20 hours a week.

“I am in shock,” said one employee, according to Salon. “I’ve worked here 15 years. This is why I keep the job — because of my benefits.”

    I’m a Whole Food shopper who am now boycotting Whole Foods. Shame on you Jeff Bezos!
