Forever 21 is taking some hits from customers after a leaked memo from the company to its employees detailed cuts in employee hours seemingly in response to Obamacare.
In the memo, Carla Macias, associate director of human resources at the company, wrote:
Company-wide, Forever 21 recently audited its staffing levels, staffing needs and payroll in conduction with reviewing its overall spending budget. As a result, we are reducing a number of full-time non-management positions.
Although the company released a statement on Facebook that explained "less than 1% of all U.S. store employees" would be affected, the announcement caused a firestorm.

Of course it’s Obama’s fault, but none dare say that.
Thus proving once again, that no bad consequence may EVER be assigned to Obama’s specific policies. I believe that is the essence of “the Limbaugh theorem”.
Every day, and in every way, the Current Occupant of the White Hut comes to resemble Richard Nixon, more and more.
And liberals thought Nixon was an unmitigated SOB.

So... This company is supposed to not make any changes. Get hosed by Obamacare. Go bankrupt. Have no employees, which means no jobs. That makes it OK to these wing-nut libs?

Don’t they know that the only valid reasons for even starting a company are to give people jobs and healthcare, and to pay taxes to the government?
What’s wrong with these capitalists who actually want to make a profit?

These protests are from the occupy crowd who from all appearances spend very little time in hair salons.
Never heard of Forever 21. Must be some Yuppie me-too type store.

Forever 29 1/2
Working less than 30 hours a week will become the new norm. Everywhere, as this progresses.
Liberals NEVER seem to understand all their unintended consequences. And then are mad at others for what they themselves caused!
