What most low-information Obama voters don’t know is that ObamaCare changes the definition of what a full-time worker is. Under ObamaCare, a full-time worker is anyone who works more than 30 hours a week. Business will be forced to reduce the hours of these low-wage, part-time employees in order to stay in business.
Remember those health care waivers issued to fast-food restaurants? Team Obama had to hide the truth from low-information O-bots.This is how much they care about the working poor/middle class. Thank a Democrat in 2014.
A fast-food chain is slashing employee hours so franchise owners don’t have to pay health benefits. Around 100 local Wendy’s workers have learned their hours are being cut. A spokesperson says a new health care law is to blame.
“Thirty-six to 37 hours a week.” That’s how many hours T.J. Growbeck works at the 84th and Giles Wendy’s restaurant. The money he earns helps him pay for the basics, but that’s not the case for all his co-workers. “There are some people doing it trying to get by.”
The company has announced that all non-management positions will have their hours reduced to 28 a week. Gary Burdette, Vice President of Operations for the local franchise, says the cuts are coming because the new Affordable Health Care Act requires employers to offer health insurance to employees working 32-38 hours a week. Under the current law they are not considered full time and that as a small business owner, he can’t afford to stay in operation and pay for everyone’s health insurance.
