They aren't "holding off on hiring."<quoted text>
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 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.
