Additionally, the Wendy’s franchise in Nebrasks is “slashing employee hours so the owners do not have to pay for health benefits for their workers under ObamaCare’s requirements.”
WOWT reports that 100 workers in positions at 11 Omaha-area Wendy’s outlets will have to have their hours cut back 28 hours each week.
A Wendy’s worker says the reduction in hours will have a major effect on his and other co-workers.
“I’m hoping that I can get some sort of promotion because then I would get my hours, but everybody is shooting for that because of the hours being cut,” Growbeck told WOWT.
Additionally, WOWT reports that fast food workers hours are being cut. The workers are blaming the new health care law. WOWT also reports:
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.
There are 11 Wendy’s restaurants in the metro. “It has a huge effect on me and pretty much everybody that I work with,” says Growbeck, who understands the reasoning and says other part-timers at other fast-food restaurants are facing the same problem. “I’m hoping that I can get some sort of promotion because then I would get my hours, but everybody is shooting for that because of the hours being cut.”
Additionally, Burdette said the the decision affects 100 employees. Burdette understands why people are upset. The hour reduction will be effective in two weeks for every non-management worker.
Reportedly, management employees will have full-time benefits.
I find this disgusting. Once again, the “little guys and gals” are getting S-C-R-E-W-E-D.
