I'm sure many other employers will follow.

Wal-mart's employee scheduling is very inconsiderate toward employees. I understand the profitability aspect of efficient scheduling, but their method should be outlawed.

The article says they are shifting the burden onto the federal government when in fact they are shifting the burden on the taxpayer in obamacare. Thank you obummer.

Watch how foriegn companies start milking the new system. Watch how small business startup in this country plunge. Watch how obama gives our country to the undeserving...while we workers and taxpayers pay fines and fees because it is just cheaper for us to not participate.

Queers on expensive meds, drunks needing liver transplants, smokers needing heart meds, abortioners, the lazy and illegals, they are going to love it. The people that have kept this country halfway afloat, the workers and business folk, get to pay more and get less. Sit back and watch the downfall of the great society. There is nothing you can do.

Hardly. I wish a tsunami ir valcano would end his life today as he vacations in Hawai. Wal-mart pays their employees a low wage, which is okay, but swaps their schedules around so much that they can not pick up a second job, etc. One cashier recently told me she makes just over $8 an hour. She had to work that morning from 6 to 11, then come back the SAME DAY and work 3 to 5 in the afternoon. She said that is typical, and it was expensive to drive 20 miles round trip twice in one day. It also poses severe logistical problems when compounded with shuffling children to school and child care.

Stupid questions often get my smart-aleck reply, so here goes:

Probably the same reason your spouse stays: it is what they are used to, and they insanely hope that some day it will get better!

Maybe I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that employers scheduled employees for when they needed them -- not when it was convenient for the employee to work.

Well, if jobs are that scarce, then she probably needs to work whenever they want her to if she doesn't want to be unemployed. You are observing market forces at work -- she's getting paid what she's worth. If she were worth a lot more, some other business would be recruiting her. If she wants to make more, she needs to increase her skill level and look elsewhere.

Seems this cashier made a lot of poor decisions through out her life and it's why she is working at Walmart compalinning about her shifts? If jobs are so hard to come by in Paris then why not move to somewhere else? The same problems she has here will be some where else also.

Olive Garden and Red Lobster made the same announcement about a month ago. They will have very few full time employees so they will not have to provide medical/health care insurance. I am sorry to think this, but I feel many, many companies will be making the same decision.

Hello? It's hasn't been nearly a month since the Republicans got a hiding in the election. You're party's contempt for people who "don't work and get a government" check is well known. What then is your explanation of the contempt you now display for working people? Do you really feel that the 18 inches of counter separating you, Wal-Mart shopper, from the Wal-Mart cashier qualifies you to look down your nose at people?

Companies were shifting to contract workers before the president was elected the first time. Look around and see how many contract workers we have in Paris and how long they've been in business. It was just another way for them to get over on the working class.

I have a strong feeling that something along these lines is why Baby Doll's cut back on Titty Anna's hours.

If there were'nt people like her in the world wal-mart wouldn't be in business. Nobody else would work for the wages they're working for. The least they could do is schedule straight hours to help their employee's who have children. They're making bilions off her and others like her, not just through employment but also the consumers who're in the same shape she's in. Forming a union wouldn't hurt wal-mart at all. They're one of the companies whose employees need a union to represent them. Slave salaries and slave hours.
