    Operators evaluate money-saving options before the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act takes effect

    October 17, 2012 | By Erin Dostal


    In light of the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, restaurant companies and franchisees are looking into ways to lower costs to save money, including cutting employee hours.

    “What we’re seeing is that this health care law puts unique challenges on chain restaurants,” said Rob Green, executive director of the National Council of Chain Restaurants. “The law will have cost implications on a lot of different business sectors, but restaurants and retail are in the bull’s eye.”

    Specifically, two parts of the PPACA may raise costs for restaurant chains: The definition of full-time employees as those who work 30 or more hours per week, rather than the traditional 37-40 hours per week, and the fact that the law applies to any business with more than 50 employees — a number some say will discourage franchise growth.


    “These are going to be costs, and companies have to figure out how to manage them…the options are limited,” Green said. Many restaurant companies don’t know exactly how the health care law will impact them, he added, so this early analysis may be crucial.

    .

    There will be plenty more of this, as I suspect the authors of the ACA anticipated when they wrote this pig of a bill.

    Absolutely asinine that we attach health coverage to employment.

    Obama continues to beat the living shit out of our working poor with his punishingly regressive policies.

    World History is replete with examples of the unintended consequences of communism.

    In case you haven't been paying attention, growth in the business world is pretty sluggish because of the vagaries in cost requirements inflicted by this administration's policies. In other words, the competition isn't there, you're stuck with obama service.

    My husband has asthma. We just found out that our ER is going to be shut down again. Again.

    Again. In a left wing province. Paying into socialized healthcare for decades.

    The closest we will be for him is over an hour away. The funeral home is closer. Take a look at Obamacare closely.

    This future is yours.

    Of course, the "commiebuster" has to jack off again.

    You're like a combination of a broken record and a broken clock.....you keep repeating the same bullshit and you're right twice in a 24 hour period.....and the last part is giving you way too much credit.

    ACA is a clusterfuck that the Dems, Pelosi, Reid and Barry have foisted on us.

    Nobody read the fucking thing and they could care as they will be covered by we taxpayers for the rest of their miserable lives.

    We can't afford ours HC but will be providing theirs till they all croak.

    Way ta go Dems.
