Evil Wal-Mart and Good Target

This produces the impression of an evil plot by Wal-Mart to turn an employee benefit into a profit center. But when Target and Trader Joe made a similar decision, it was considered a boon to workers ( http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/10/walmart-and-the-end-of-employer-based-health-care/381199/ ), because they can only get government subsidies if they don’t get employer-provided insurance.
