Health care seems to be one of the big hurdles when you FIRE due to it usually being a young age with many years before medicare kicks in.

So, thought it would be helpful to have a thread dedicated to names of places that will provide employee healthcare for part time employees. Hopefully, this might make FIRE more a possability to someone out there.

I'll post more as I find them :)

So, I'll start with who the places I know:

Citgo/FoodBag (gas station)
Friendlies (resturant)
Starbucks (quick serve)
Petco (pet store)
REI (retail sports store)**note regardless of # hrs!


**Dollar General has some interesting benefits for part time**

**Also, colleges offer limited health care benefits that (might) be cheaper then buying it privately - think community college for a course might be fun :)

***I did look up crate and barrel - only get health if full time, but does have 401k for part time

***Winn Dixie (south) and Shaws (new england) -(both grocery) does say it offers it but doesnt specfically say to part time employees


P.S. My basic point is most people live close to one of these stores, and part time could only be a day or two a week of your time, and in theory a very low stress job to pass the time
