MA: Low wage employers suck $52 million in public funds

Following a string of new reports on health care subsidies to low wage employers like Wal-Mart, the Massachusetts Health and Human Services Division has released this report detailing that thousands of Wal-Mart, Dunkin Donuts and McDonald's employees are dependent on public health spending, since their employers won't pick up the tab.

The bottom-line is that employers who dump their health care costs on the taxpayers are undercutting employers who provide health care for their workers.
