I am so sorry, that sucks on so many levels I can't even cover them all.
Go on the health exchange right away and find out what you can get.
You might even be able to get better coverage.

Glad to hear you have coverage.
They can't get rid of the 401k as it exists.
I suspect they won't match your donation but don't take my word for it.

I lost my dental coverage because I didn't average 20 hrs last year. Luckily, my husband has great dental on us but the double coverage really came in handy and I need A LOT of work done now. :( Would've been great to know that last year sometime. My average was 17.74. Awesome. :(

If only corporate could figure out how to cut paying their employees, they'd die happy. It's got to hurt that they can't keep all the profits for themselves.

That blows. Do you know the life insurance carrier? Could you call and tell them what's up, and seeing as you've been paying in so long, maybe they can keep you on individually at a lower rate? Probably a dream, but maybe worth looking into.

Spot chucking your coverage to pay for "be bold" coupon scammers and the imminent corporate parachute (I call: greg goes before june with 12+ million bonus) is fucking disgusting.

Before they hand him his parachute, they should banish him & his minions to Canada to fix that disaster they created.

And make them ride all the way up there on those beautiful Neiman Marcus/Target bicycles.

You can keep your plan period... not really. Thanks Obama.

That sucks about your situation but at least you were able to get something. Obamacare is one of the worst ideas in the history of human kind. It's worse than jump to conclusions mats.

Seriously, there needs to be an unlike button. Jack, Target was going to drop this with or without Obamacare. Major corporations used Obamacare as an excuse to drop benefits to maintain high profits.

Seriously, you are very ignorant. Also how is correcting your ignorance makes me an automatic Obama supporter? I am an Socialist. We don't support capitalists like Obama and his pro insurance company reform like Obamacare.

Major companies like spot had plans for years to drop health and life insurance for years. They used Obamacare as an excuse to hasten the process.

Only a fool thinks Spot cares for you. Unless you are a TL or higher.

Not ignorant at all. Obama and Obamacare some of the biggest jokes in American history. The man said he was going to be the anti-Bush and the most transparent president ever. He has failed miserably on both of those things. Obama's foreign policy is the same as Bush's but on steroids. His administration is one of the most secretive and one of the most hostile toward the press. Bush tortured with waterboarding. Obama drones the crap out of people. I just smirk and laugh at it. People are such sheep and blindly obedient to political parties that it is truly sad. Obama goes on Ellen, Letterman, Jon Stewart, The View as president. Not even evil Bush did that crap.

Maybe not ignorant, but mainly a fool. Obamacare or not. Target had plans to eliminate benefits for a majority of Team Members. Ever since the fall of labour movement. Companies have been gaining back a lot of control from the workers. Companies like SPOT know that their own workers don't have the power to fight back and so they can do anything too us.

This crap would have happen with any sitting President.

Bush was too stupid to talk his way out of paper bag, and he couldn't talk on policy cause Cheney wrote the policy..

Obama is serving Bush's 4th term. It's funny how he told us to vote for him because McCain would have been a 3rd term of Bush.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the government or any law.

The fact is, you worked under the number of hours to get benefits. Target has a minimum number of hours you have to work to have benefits, you didn't work them, you lost your benefits.

This is nothing new. Target has required TMs work a certain number of hours for benefits for at least the past decade or two.

Am I saying this is your fault? No. But it also isn't the governments fault. It's your leaderships fault. They are the ones who control your hours, they didn't give them to you. Your beef needs to be with them, not "the government" boogey man.

Those plans people lost were all deemed not legal by the new law...meaning they didn't meet standards. They didn't cover much, but that's not going to stop you from spewing your agenda and talking points.

For the record, not a Republican or a Democrat. No agenda and no talking points. Obama flat out lied with the whole "you can keep your plan, period". You obviously can't when millions lost theirs. Nothing new here. Presidents have been lying for eons and eons. I just wish he would own up and admit that he sucks and is Dubya with a better vocabulary.

BUT, always in the past when target made drastic changes like this, they announced it 6-12 months in advance.

This time, they announced it AFTER the fact. In January they said all pt employees lose their benefits. Well guess what, you only had til December 31st to increase your hours.

It was very RUDE how they handled it this time. I was only .10 away from having full time benefits. I could have increased that EASY in December!!!
