A Taco Bell employee in Guthrie, Okla., is speaking out after the fast-food franchise cut her hours to avoid costs associated with Obamacare, reports News9.
For Johnna Davis, a single mother of three who saw her hours fall in December to 28 hours a week, the change not only means a smaller paycheck. It also strips her of the right to receive health benefits from Taco Bell, a right that would have kicked in under Obamacare in 2014 had the franchise continued to give Davis a full-time schedule of hours.
Owners of fast-food franchises across the nation are blind-siding hourly employees by cutting their weekly hours — and, in turn, their paychecks — to dodge Obamacare costs.
You really should read the comments on that article. It is an economic muggle convention over there. First, they are stunned to learn that increasing the cost of labor reduces the quantity of labor employers demand. They seem to think decreases in quantity demanded associate with price increases isn’t an iron clad law of economics but a choice made by meanies.
They also suggest boycotting all restaurant chains that do this thus insuring that the people they supposedly want to help be put out of a job completely.
Every time a liberal is confronted with an economic decision, they choose the wrong answer.
One of my favorite comments…
We must change. 1. Repeal Citizens United. 2. Vote all fascists out of office (in other words, all Republicans). 3. Repeal the Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 (immediately getting ending “right to work” in every state). 4. Pass the Worker’s Bill of Rights that FDR and Truman originally wanted (but was blocked by the fascist party). 5. Pass single payer health care. 6. Always call Republicans what they are: fascists. It’s no exaggeration.
Yeah, that would fix the economy good.
