there we go. Anyway, all the GAO did amounted to just a “public shaming” – not really tangible reprecussions. But the two highlighted companies did make some modifications to turn lemons-into-lemonaid so it’d get forgotten and it did.
I was wrong about the low hours; 70% were full-time and still needed assistance. Some of these companies made changes like McDonalds and Walmart. Dollar General didn’t; I hope they don’t have a sad end; I like Dollar Tree but they’ve been playing the game of “do not hire enough workers” intentionally a bit too long.
“McDonald’s was among the top five employers of Medicaid enrollees in five of six states and SNAP recipients in eight of nine states.
Other notable companies with a large number of employees on federal aid include Amazon
, Dollar General
, and other food service and retail giants.
About 70% of the 21 million federal aid beneficiaries worked full time, the report found.”
