Let's reach across the aisle.
Read this and tell me what it means.
Is this something that is good for job growth and a failing economy?
Restaurant Chain Cuts Hours to Avoid Obamacare Costs
Under a section of President Barack Obama's Affordable Healthcare Act due to go into effect in 2014, large employers face fines of up to $3,000 per employee if they fail to provide insurance for employees who work an average of 30 or more hours per week.
The company plans to offer a maximum of 28 hours per week per employee.

Let's reach across the aisle.
This is a good one,
As far as I'm concerned restaurant owners should pay emoloyees just like other business's. I ran a business with more than 60 employees. We paid condsiderably better than minimum wage too but restarant owners don't have even pay minimum wage.
I think they should have to subsidize emplooyee health care like everybody else. They get away with not paying employees a living wage.
Instead, we have to subsidize their salaries with huge tips..
Where you once a restaurant owner?
Is that why your so used to restricting employee rights to a descent living?
These people do work hard and they do deserve healthcare provided partially by their employers.

Restaurant Chain Cuts Hours to Avoid Obamacare Costs

A major restaurant group is experimenting with cutting its employees hours in the hopes of cutting the costs of healthcare.

Darden Restaurants, which owns the Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, and Yard House chains has stopped offering full-time schedules to hourly workers, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The company plans to offer a maximum of 28 hours per week per employee.

The test is being conducted in what the company calls "a select number" of restaurants in four markets but would not give details.

The Orlando-based group told the Sentinel the changes were "just one of the many things we are evaluating to help us address the cost implications healthcare reform will have on our business," adding, "There are still many unanswered questions regarding the healthcare regulations and we simply don't have enough information to make any decisions at this time."

Under a section of President Barack Obama's Affordable Healthcare Act due to go into effect in 2014, large employers face fines of up to $3,000 per employee if they fail to provide insurance for employees who work an average of 30 or more hours per week.

Darden said it offers health insurance to its 185,000 employees nationwide but many are on a limited-benefit plan which will be phased out under Obamacare.

The Orlando Business Journal reported that Darden plans to open 500 new restaurants in the next five years, adding an estimated 50,000 new jobs.

Astonishing selfishness on the part of greedy business owners who don't give a shit about their employees is not the President's fault.

They don't know enough to make any decisions, but just to be on the safe side they go ahead and screw their employees anyway.

They are not the only business that doesn't know enough to plan 5 to 10 years down the road. This is one reason businesses are holding off hiring and expanding. You cannot deny this, business's have been saying this for almost 4 years. What will Obama force on them next?

I don't see anywhere in the article about being on the safe side or screwing the employees. The blame is clearly on Obama. Place blame where blame belongs.

They aren't "holding off on hiring."

They have "stopped offering full-time schedules to hourly workers, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The company plans to offer a maximum of 28 hours per week per employee."

They are reducing the hours of current employees and eliminating their benefits. THAT is screwing over their employees.

And they aren't "holding off on expanding."

They are planning "to open 500 new restaurants in the next five years."

So employees are having their shifts cut and losing benefits while the chain is planning to open 500 new restaurants.

Why do I think that top management isn't also making sacrifices?

This is a corporate greed business decision without the courage to take responsibility for it so they dishonestly play politics instead. It's bullshit.

Watch for the absence of substantial debate here at this point.

Two very good counterpoints but let me predict the obvious from the past so called "debates" of his.

He will counter with nothing...
Or something completely not related or
something like a diatribe post of nutcase bullshit
Then of course he cries that nobody will debate him

Call him, Tax No More, Dave Rogers or Boxhard but he really the King Fraud or should I say King Frog. Hahahhahaa. Inside joke here between the two of us and oh yeah Frederich.

I wonder if these people will get their FREE idiotcare??

The facility, which was opened in July 2010 with a groundbreaking attended by Obama, has yet to produce a single battery for the Chevrolet Volt, the troubled electric car from General Motors. The plant's batteries also were intended to be used in Ford's electric Focus.

Production of the taxpayer-subsidized Volt has been plagued by work stoppages, and the effect has trickled down to companies and plants that build parts for it -- including the batteries.
