8. My Wife Is A 25

 

year veteran of Wal-Mart. I hate it. She hates it. I have had major health issues including heart surgeries. She is job-tied because of the insurance mess. We haven't had a normal Thanksgiving in 2 decades. This year, she had to be at work at 9:00 PM Thanksgiving night. Up until this year, it was always 10:00PM or later. She now works overnight to get the extra incintive pay, and has been told that she will have to be at work at 10:00 PM on Christmas night.

I am so looking forward to Obamacare making it possible for her to leave Wal-Mart and allow for me to continue to have healthcare insurance. She is already searching for a job, and we stand to gain a huge chunk of money from her retirement account when she leaves. We will be able to pay off everything that we owe, and have enough money to pay for COBRA for 6 months while she becomes eligible for insurance at a new job.

Being on disability limits my options, but getting her away from Wal-Mart has been my top priority for nearly a decade now, and it is so close that I can smell it.
