A shitty job just got shittier. The owner of a Wendy’s store in Omaha, Nebraska clearly hasn’t read the news because every business that’s tried this has been yanked back by public outrage and boycotts.
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.
Someone this clueless probably shouldn’t be allowed to prepare food for human consumption anyway.
