Wal-Mart: Always Lower Benefits

Found via DailyKos:

Tallahassee Democrat | Wal-Mart: the $288 billion welfare queen

"As states across the country struggle to balance budgets and keep their Medicaid programs in check, data from Florida and 12 other states show Wal-Mart to be a top corporate beneficiary of state-run, taxpayer-funded programs like Medicaid.

That is, the retail behemoth deliberately cuts corners on employee health care, forcing a disproportionate number of its employees into state programs in order to receive health care for themselves and their families."
