I trust you've provided accurate facts. Costco seems like an excellent place to work doesn't it. I don't "hear" a very gently guy as you explain Medicaid to me. Me thinks you're very touchy. I hope you aren't one of those who blames Walmart exclusively for outsourcing. If W S Journal's article reflects correct info in this comparison with Costco, I invite you to compare the part-timer insurance thing with other companies. By the way, on the average, Walmart associates are very happy people and somehow the day-to-day feeling of those people is important, whether or not I, myself, would enjoy working in that environment. Have you ever read Warren Buffet's comments about Walmart. Somehow I think he's a pretty reliable gauge.
