You do realize that Yelp is REQUIRED by the Affordable Care Act to provide coverage, right? And that it wouldn’t be $600 a month. They company probably wouldn’t be paying that under a group plan. If she we were to get coverage on her own, without Yelp offering it, for someone her age and income level it would probably only be roughly $200-$300 a month for a Silver plan, though she may be even to get a Bronze plan for even less (I’m estimating here, but I am a licensed insurance broker).
In other words, it appears that Yelp was paying the bare minimum (SF’s min wage is $12.25) and offering the bare minimum in terms of benefits, while making millions in profits. How grateful should anyone be for that?
