19. I completely agree, but apparently it is a legal practice. Olive Garden/Red Lobster's going there.

 

There was an article in today's paper about the parent company of both (starts with a "D", forget the actual name) switching employees to just under 30 hours per week to avoid paying for healthcare (and of course, blaming it on Obamacare, big shock there). But WalMart's been doing the two PT job thing for at least a decade. I've known a lot of people who got fucked over by that trick and ended up quitting. It's a bait and switch. They get hired on as FT with a "probation" period and before it expires are reduced to PT and then later offered a second PT job in another department. Then they end up right back where they were and never set foot in the other department again - still no benefits.
