Should be 29. I don't know exactly (because the thing isn't even clearly defined yet) but it's in reaction to being responsible for providing health insurance. Employers must pay a certain percentage if they have over 50 full time employees. So, if a franchise has, say, 25 stores, owners are going to try to have each store only employee two full-timers. Or they may go full retard and have a manager on salary so they can work 60+ hours with no overtime pay. In essence, they are getting out of insurance costs with the added bonus of not having to grant paid vacations or other possible benefits previously offered only to full time employees. I understand to an extent, but feel that business owners are over-reacting and making serious mistakes with their employees. As I said, I don't understand the law in it's present form, because it isn't fully formed yet. To my knowledge. If anyone can clarify why anything I've said is in any way inaccurate, I welcome the response. I'd like to know more.

This is pretty much correct. Except employers do not have to provide health insurance at all. It is not mandatory. But when they do choose to provide it as a benefit, then they fall under certain state and federal laws, which is what you described. they are in place so you cannot pick and choose the employees you want to cover. They have to provide it to all full time employees or none at all.

Health insurance has always been one of the largest expenses for any business. With the new laws it would appear, at least initially this will only get worse. Many companies saw a 30%- 40% increase. And again it was already a very large expense for them. So the incentive is to bring on more part time workers and still be able to offer benefits to the salary people (Sales, managers, marketing, etc....) this does not mean they are trying to take care of only the owners, but that they wish to offer the benefit to some of the mid range employees. They simply may not be able to afford to offer it to everyone, and it does little good to provide insurance for all your employees then go broke. No one has a job at that point, so insurance will be the least of anyone's concern.

You may in fact see business' drop health insurance coverage all together because of the current costs. people believe that larger companies can afford anything, but that is rarely the case. and the restaurant business is obviously a very competitive one to begin with, so i don't blame them a bit.
