Omaha, NE’s, WOWT television reports that an 11-restaurant Wendy’s franchise
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.
The reduction will affect 100 Wendy’s franchise employees. Here’s another example of Obamacare pricing those it claims to help out of the market.
