Obamacare reduces work hours for growing ranks of workers…

Here is an example.

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.

    I followed a Prius in this morning and it had these three bumper stickers…

    -Stop Fracking Now!
    -Unions = Jobs
    -I ❤ Obamacare

    Stopping fracking would end the only bright spot in the US economy. Unions absolutely, positively cost the economy jobs by increasing the cost of labor. Obamacare, as shown above, is costing people jobs and hours.

    Just another clueless economic muggle.

      I saw a Prius with two bumper stickers:

      1) Question Authority
      2) Obama/Biden 2012

      i went to the PA Farm show yesterday and there were two stands,

      One by the Marcellus Shale and one Anti-Fracking that was being manned by a wild eyed guy that looked rather desperate to speak to someone. ANYONE.
      and I hear matt damon’s antifracking movie funded by saudi oil is bombing, too.

      • notamobster says:

        I believe it’s funded by the Emir of Qatar. The point remains valid, but…

        • Fubar says:

          “Promised Land was also produced “in association with” Image Media Abu Dhabi, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Media, according to the preview’s list of credits. A spokesperson with DDA Public Relations, which runs PR for Participant Media, the company that developed the film fund backing Promised Land, confirmed that AD Media is a financier. The company is wholly owned by the government of the UAE.”
          UAE is next to Saudi Arabia.

    Warning< reading comments at HuffPo will make your head hurt.

    12 yr olds in adult bodies complaining about not being treated fair being catered to by pols. We are doomed.

  3. R.D. Walker says:

    1) The commentator I quoted in the main post wants the private sector to be under the absolute control of the state in order to advance a national labor agenda promoting a de facto socialist regime. He as chosen a group to demonize as against nationalist interests and supports the suppression of that group for the good of the people as a collective.

    2) The commentator I quoted in the main post hates fascists.

    Reconcile 1 and 2 into a coherent worldview.
