Analysts say many other companies, including the White Castle hamburger chain, are considering employing fewer full-timers because of key features of the Affordable Care Act scheduled to go into effect in 2014. Under that law, large companies must provide affordable health insurance to employees working an average of at least 30 hours per week.
If they do not, the companies can face fines of up to $3,000 for each employee who then turns to an exchange an online marketplace for insurance.

And to think that the President of Darden who happens to be black is a big Obama supporter and friend!
Whitecastle used to offer benefits to employees that worked at least 10 hours a week, but the employee share and coverage did not meet ACA requirements.
Next, all of those people will end up being in the 47%, pay no income taxes, go on food stamps and other public assistance. It is working out great for 0bama.
There is so much contract work now...it’s a wonder that anyone gets benefits....EXCEPT FOR GOVERNMENT WORKERS.
Put all the employees on 4 hours a day 7 days a week and pay minimum wage with no benefits ,then blame it on the government law you supported.A win,win for a heartless businessman.
That is the plan...
and union workers.
I posted a Vanity on this earlier. Someone posted the IRS has now redefined 30 hours as “full time.”
So I guess it goes down to 29 hours. Until there’s another regulation.
But think of all the “new workers” working 2 or 3 jobs! Lowers the unemployment numbers. Benefits the politicians inpower.
“Zerocare strikes again ”
That’s a great moniker for ObamaCare, because “zero care” is pretty much what you’re going to get once it’s fully implemented...
