Dear Ron Sargent:
I am a part-time employee of your company, Staples. I have served Staples faithfully for many years, and have earned your company far more income than you have paid me over that time. On January 4th, 2014, a policy was enacted at your retail stores that limited part-time employees to 25 hours a week. I have worked over 25 hours a week for the entirety of my employment at your company, as have a vast majority of your part-time staff. I inquired about the reason of the policy up the chain of command, and was not given a straight answer at every level.
402528_176619879142958_864642698_n
It is for this reason, that we the part-time employees of Staples, hereby petition your company for the following actions:
402528_176619879142958_864642698_n
1. Amend your policy to at least 35 hours a week for part-time employees or abolish said policy.
402528_176619879142958_864642698_n
2. If there are reasons this cannot be done, Staples is to make an honest and truthful public statement as to why.
You are probably wondering under what authority we as employees have the right to demand such changes from the CEO of a company. As Customer Service Representatives, it is not only our duty to represent the company to the customer, it is also our duty to represent the customer to the company. Enclosed is a printed copy of over 200,000 signatures of people who disagree with your current actions and demand you change your policy. Most of them are your customers and have pledged not to shop at your stores until you take corrective action.
402528_176619879142958_864642698_n
We know that thousands of other companies have been enacting similar policies for one reason, the Affordable Health Care Act. We also know that the medical insurance you currently offer through Aetna does not meet the minimum standards of the law. The ACA states that any employee working over 30 hours a week is entitled to health insurance, or the company faces steep fines. We understand that paying those fines would be an unacceptable cost to your corporation. However, we encourage Staples to be more open as to why this company is enacting such changes. If complying with the law would cost Staples hundreds of millions of dollars, then speak out!
402528_176619879142958_864642698_n
If you truly need to enact such policies to avoid hefty fees, and to give you time to research ways to comply with the law that meet the needs of both the company and its employees, then please make this known in a public statement!
402528_176619879142958_864642698_n
We also hereby inform you that we will use all lawful means to petition your company until we receive an answer, and that this letter will be distributed to all petition signers.

Twas The Night Before Christmas & ALL Through Staples….Employees Get Their Hours Cut To Avoid ObamaCARES.


 

By Jueseppi B.

staples520

 

 

On December 6th of 2013 I wrote this…. “Tis The Holiday Season” At Wal-Mart, a Wal-Mart employees mom’s account of an incident at her son’s Wal-Mart store. Now come a similar store about Staples.

 

The Petition: “Staples: Don’t Cut Part-Time Hours Because of Obamacare!.” 

 

My name is “Sue,” and I work at Staples. I can’t tell you my full name because I’m afraid I’ll lose my job for what I’m about to tell you: Staples recently decided to cut part-time employees’ hours just so they won’t have to provide health care benefits under Obamacare.

 

Staples is taking advantage of a loophole in the health care law that says employers don’t have to provide coverage for employees who work less than 30 hours a week. Staples also told managers to hire more part time workers if they need people to cover the schedule.

 

Cutting employees’ hours just to avoid paying for health care is not right. I can’t afford to make less money than I do now without taking on another job. That’s why I started a petition on Change.org asking Staples to not cut part-time employees’ hours and comply with Obamacare. Will you join me by signing my petition?

 

I’ve worked as an Easy-Tech Representative for 9 years now, selling thousands of computers, protection plans, and services. I typically work 30-35 hours in a week, so when I was told that my hours would be cut, I was heartbroken. I recently got married and we have a baby on the way — 25 hours a week is not enough to make ends meet, let alone start a family.

 

Staples doesn’t want to provide health care to its employees — but there is hope. Other chain employers such as Darden Restaurants (owners of Olive Garden and Red Lobster) reversed similar cuts after intense public pressure. And other corporations like Starbucks have pledged not to reduce part time hours.

 

By signing my petition, you’ll be amplifying the voices of thousands of Staples employees across the country who are afraid to speak out and can’t afford to have their hours cut. Click here to sign my petition demanding Staples follow the law and provide health care instead of cutting part-time employees’ hours.

 

Thank you for your support.

Sue’s Petition:

 

Staples: Don’t Cut Part-Time Hours Because of Obamacare!

 

I am writing this petition as an anonymous person, as I fear my employer will persecute me if they knew my identity. My trust in the company I work for has been shaken, as they have enacted a new policy to reduce our hours, and I believe they are not telling the whole truth as to why.

 

I have worked as an Easy-Tech Representative at Staples, sold countless thousands of computers, protection plans, and services, and have made Staples far more money than they have paid me. I typically work 30-35 hours in a week, and have so for about 9 years now. I enjoy working at Staples, and the staff at my store have come to depend on me. I love my job. I recently got married, and am pregnant with my first child.

 

However, in mid-December, the company announced to the staff at my store: A new policy of limiting ALL part-time workers to 25 hours a week – with NO exceptions — for reasons of “Scheduling Flexibility”.

 

This left me heartbroken, as I knew 25 hours a week wouldn’t let me make ends meet, let alone have enough to start a family!I questioned my co-workers as to why they would make such a drastic change. Even the General Manager couldn’t get a straight answer out of the upper management. So I decided to do a little digging, and with the help of the internet, I came across what appears to be the answer: The Affordable Healthcare Act aka “Obamacare.”

 

I read about how countless other companies were slashing part-time hours to use a loophole in the law: You don’t have to pay for healthcare if your employees don’t work more than 30 hours a week. I also learned that the Aetna medical insurance plan that Staples provided didn’t count, as it didn’t provide enough coverage to meet the minimums.

 

I was stunned. The TRUE reason was obvious: Staples didn’t want to follow the law and provide better heathcare to its employees. Instead, its giving its part-time workers a de facto pay cut and saving money by using a loophole.

 

However, there is hope. Other major employers such as Darden Restaurants (owners of Olive Garden and Red Lobster) rescinded similar cuts after intense pressure. Congress has also delayed the requirement until 2015, giving Congress time to sort things out. Corporations such as Starbucks and H-E-B have pledged NOT to reduce part time hours.

 

Will you join me in asking Staples to join companies like Starbucks and H-E-B to pledge NOT the cut part time employees’ hours? 

 

To:
Ron Sargent, CEO of Staples
Don’t Cut Part-Time Hours Because of Obamacare! Join Starbucks and H-E-B in pledging not to cut hours!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

I received many comments on my Wal-Mart post alerting me that I only posted/reported one side of that story. So here’s a solution to that lie….if you have opposing information or facts to this Staples post or the Wal-Mart post, and when I say facts, thats exactly what I mean, then send that opposite side of the big box story to me, and I’ll post them.

 

Otherwise, miss me with your bull shit.

From The White House: This Is Important News About Obamacares AND Christmas In Washington At The National Building Museum.


 

By Jueseppi B.

whitehousebarackhusseinobama

 

 

This is important:

Since October 1st, more than 1.2 million Americans are poised to gain coverage under Obamacare — and more are picking plans every day.

 

Now, the deadline is coming up to get coverage from the Marketplace in time for the new year. You have until December 23rd to select a plan in order for your health insurance to start byJanuary 1st.

 

So if you’re reading this email and you need health coverage, go to HealthCare.gov right now. Shop for a plan that meets your needs, compare prices, and get covered:

 

unnamed

 

Already have coverage? Most everyone knows at least one person who would benefit from coverage. Make sure they know how to sign up — it’s never been more important.

 

Visit WhiteHouse.gov/Get-Covered and do your part to spread the word:

 

unnamed (1)

 

While the website’s launch had its share of problems, the reality is there have been huge improvements. Today, Americans all around the country are signing up for coverage. And millions more are already getting expanded benefits under the health reform law.

 

But there are still millions of Americans who need to sign up and enroll.

 

So one more time:

 

If you don’t have coverage, go to HealthCare.gov to find a plan that meets your needs.

 

If you do have coverage, take a minute to pass on the message to someone you know.

David Axelrod, who served as a senior adviser to President Obama’s presidential campaign, shaved his 40-year-old mustache off on Friday morning’s broadcast of MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe.” Axelrod promised to shave his mustache if he was able to raise $1,000,000 for epilepsy research.

Axelrod, whose daughter suffers from epilepsy, said he would shave his mustache only if he could raise the money in under 30 days.
