In business, if your costs increase (health care), your retail prices must also increase. If you don't, you will go out of business and you and your employees will become part of a greater problem.
We should not complain, we voted for the guy, right?

You all make me laugh. Papa John's is only one of dozens of restaurants locally that do not provide health insurance for employees. Olive Garden only works their employees part-time, they can never get 40 hrs/wk. Profit margin is the bottom line, and if the employees don't like their package, they can work elsewhere. That is why a skill and education is so very important. The perks are what it's all about for an employee, so don't work in a pizza joint as a career choice! Whining on Topix will not help you achieve a career goal. Education and hard work is the key.

so the money he spent on his house cars and whatever else would probably pay for 2 maybe 3 months of insurance

You don't get it he calculated health insurance for all employees, your number comes out to 300 dollars a year per 16500 employees.
Your math is way off, no one gets health insurance for 300 a year.

For an American small business owner the government get over 30% right off the top before expenses like wages, supplies/materials, rent, maintenence, utilities, liability insurance, UI deductions etc. That doesn't leave much to pay employees wages and benefits.
The problem is with the medical field. They want to make huge profits while they have you over a barrel. Medicine and treatments should not put you in the poorhouse.

By the way, if you are a foreigner the goverment gives you 5 years before taxing them. They can then transfer the business to a family member and he has 5 years. Plus they qualify for an interest free loan.

Slaves were an investment. If your investment died, you lost.
A young healthy male field hand could sell at auction for the price of an average home in 1850. Look it up.
Now, if a wage slave gets sick and dies, the slave owners(employers) simply go hire another wage slave.
Think about it.
the moral of this story is dont be a wage slave

get educated

learn a trade

become indispensable become in valuable and you wont ever be a wage slave

dont be a wage slave

I had my information straight from a business owner's mouth. He is currently in process of selling his business and is a respected individual. This information was given to him by a tax official.

It wasn't that roundabout and the man is respected for his integrity. Maybe there are a few things you don't know. Believe it or not noncitizens do get breaks that we don't get.
