One of the nation's largest HMOs is laying off 530 employees in Southern California this weekend, including some in San Diego County, a company official confirmed Saturday.I think the only thing worse than Obamacare is an HMO.
Kaiser Permanente said the layoffs -- constituting about eight-tenths of one percent of its employees -- would be spread across its 65,700 employees and doctors working in offices and hospitals from Kern County to the Mexican border.
Under its union contracts, the laid-off employees who are in unions will get income and benefits for a year. Many will also be rehired in 2013, when Kaiser Permanente expects "significant membership growth" next year.

This doesn't look to be a good Thanksgiving. I bet Christmas isn't going to be good either.
