In an experiment apparently aimed at keeping down the cost of health-care reform, Orlando-based Darden Restaurants has stopped offering full-time schedules to many hourly workers in at least a few Olive Gardens, Red Lobsters and LongHorn Steakhouses.

Darden said the test is taking place in "a select number" of restaurants in four markets, including Central Florida, but would not give details. The company said there has been no decision made about expanding it.

In an emailed statement, Darden said staffing changes are "just one of the many things we are evaluating to help us address the cost implications health care reform will have on our business. There are still many unanswered questions regarding the health care regulations and we simply do not have enough information to make any decisions at this time."

Analysts say many other companies, including the White Castle hamburger chain, are considering employing fewer full-timers because of key features of the Affordable Care Act scheduled to go into effect in 2014. Under that law, large companies must provide affordable health insurance to employees working an average of at least 30 hours per week.

Automation and outsourcing off shore.

The Obama Administration and Obamacare are the root cause of both of these solutions that hundreds of thousands of small companies will utilize.

My company has already eliminated one job and there will be more eliminated.

In addition, we will no longer offer company paid HSA accounts. We are seriously looking at eliminating company paid for health insurance and company funded pensions. All courtesy of the regulatory quagmire mandated by the Obama Administration.

Sadly, the workers that have been fooled into thinking that Obama is their protector are going to find out he is their worst enemy.

Enjoy your government cheese while you live out your final years on the government plantation.
