Taco Bell chain in Oklahoma to cut hours over ObamaCare mandates

Fast food chains around the country Going Galt!

News9 Oklahoma City:
The Taco Bell in Guthrie cuts its full-time employees' hours to avoid mandates under the new health care law.

Now, a mother of three who works at that restaurant is speaking out. Under the Affordable Care Act, any company that has more than 50 full-time workers falls under the new health insurance mandate.

We talked to the company that owns the Guthrie restaurant today, and it confirmed the cuts. Now, employees there aren't allowed to work more than 28 hours a week.

Johnna Davis has worked at the Taco Bell in Guthrie since September. She's seen a 200 dollar cut in her paycheck since a new store policy went into effect.

"They informed everybody that nobody was considered full-time any longer, that everybody was now considered part-time, and [they] would be cutting hours back to 28 hours or less due to Obamacare," Davis said.

Under the Affordable Care Act, companies are required to provide insurance to its full-time employees, or face fines.
BUYCOTT FOR TACO BELL!! - Make sure to grab a bite at Taco Bell next time you're looking for fast food. Tell them you support capitalism, and their right to hire, fire, cut hours as they please. -- the Editors

They could over-work fifty employees, could they not?

A company will do with less if it can. Call an increase in productivity. It's been going on for a long time. They'll keep squeezing as long as they have to. The bottom line in this case is that government regulations affected their bottom line to the extent they had to make adjustments. The primary objective of any business is profitability, not hiring people or paying for their medical bills. That said, a natural and mutual beneficial balance could be struck if government would get the fuck out of the way. The bad guy is the government, not Taco Bell or any other business.
