    from forever 21:

    Thank you for reaching out Bob. Forever 21, like all retailers, staffs its stores based on projected store sales, completely independent of the Affordable Care Act. After a recent evaluation, Forever 21 realigned its staffing needs to better reflect sales expectations. This realignment impacted less than 1% of all U.S. store employees. Forever 21 values all of its employees and made every effort to affect as few employees as possible in this realignment
    yeah, that makes it all better - asshats...

      Their math only works when they figure in that they were "already" converting these people to part-time so they wouldn't be eligible, so the number losing is minimal.

      Math games.

      Because if the only people it impacted would be 1%, why bother?  The savings and impact would be minimal, as well.

      Sounds like they "value" their employees somewhere between typhoid fever and bubonic plague.

      What do we want? Universal health care! When do we want it? Now!
