WASHINGTON, D.C. (8/28/2013)—On Monday Wal-Mart made a historical announcement that will likely produce a large amount of feedback from a variety of perspectives.
Wal-Mart announced that they will start to offer health insurance and benefits to domestic partners of employees, including those of the same sex.
A news release said that the largest U.S. employer made the announcement quietly in a postcard it sent to employees that listed five other changes in benefits, including a new vision plan. In order to qualify for the benefits, the employee must be with the company a year and work a minimum of thirty hours a week.
