Posted on 08/16/2013 3:47:20 PM PDT by Charles Henrickson
The DUmmies continue to reel from the real effects of Obamacare, as it begins to unfold. The latest news is that the national clothing-store chain Forever 21 is moving many of their employees from full-time to part-time status, so the company doesn't have to suffer the punitive costs of Obamacare. Hey, DUmmies, OWN IT! This is what you voted for. Own it.
But no, instead of owning it, the DUmmies are frowning it. They're mad at Forever 21 for trying to keep their business in business. Why, in fact, this calls for a BOYCOTT!! The DUmmies are going to leap into action and bring Forever 21 TO THEIR KNEES! That'll show 'em! DUAC! DUAC!
We witness the DUmmie call to action here in this THREAD, "Forever 21 letter to all full time/non-management employees."
So let us now see the DUmmies fume, stir, and organize for action, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, marveling at the wondrous miracle that is the Obama Economy--what is this now, Recovery Summer 5.0?--is in the [Barackets]:
Forever 21 letter to all full time/non-management employees
[Here follows the text of said letter, which we now excerpt . . .]
Company-wide, Forever 21 recently audited its staffing levels, staffing needs and payroll in conjunction with reviewing its overall operating budget.
[I didn't know you could get overalls at Forever 21. But back to the letter . . .]
As a result, we are reducing a number of full-time non-management positions. This includes full-time Stock Associates, Sales Associates, Store Maintenance Associates, Accessory Specialists and Cashiers.
[Translation: stockers, salesgirls, janitors, scrunchie-crunchers, and checkout girls.]
Based on our audit, your position will be reclassified as Part-Time. . . . As a Part-Time employee your regular schedule will not exceed 29.5 hours per week.
[Forever 29.5. Just under the magic 30-hour mark, at which point--under Obamacare--employers are forced to give you health care. There you have it, ladies! This is what you got when you voted for your dreamboat Obama: Part-time work, just as long as no one can threaten your precious Sacrament of Abortion.]
[The DUmmies react . . .]
Time for call and boycott this retailer.
[PHONE CALLS! PICKET LINES! DUAC! DUAC!]
No, it's time for a change in laws.
[But, but, this is YOUR law! This is the Democrats' law! The Afforable Care Act! AFFTAX!]
Everyone gets benefits, part-time and full-time.
[And nobody has to pay for them! Except for those evil rich corporations, of course. Oh, wouldn't it be loverly?]
In the meantime, until there are no Republicans in Congress that is, a boycott is about all we can do.
[But wait, it wasn't the REPUBLICANS in Congress that gave us Obamacare! It was you DEMOCRATS!]
[Additional cost in dollars that Forever 21 would otherwise incur.]
better yet, lets not have healthcare tied to employment at all
[Or, as is happening with Obamacare, let's not have employees tied to employment at all.]
We gave them a 1 year waiver remember?
[I would rather give them a Forever-Plus-21-year waiver.]
So under ACA, the incentive exists to cut as many workers as you can to below the statutory level for ACA employer mandate - 30 hours.
[You're just now figuring this out, Einstein?]
What we have done with this law is clearly inflicting a great deal of damage upon the most vulnerable.
[But, but, we had to pass it in order to find out what's in it!]
We had our shot and we got the ACA. But it's awesome because (D) passed it!
[I detect a note of sarcasm.]
it is better than nothing.
[I vote for nothing.]
it has its staunch defenders.
[It has its stench defenders.]
We all know ACA is a stepping stone to single payer.
[Ah, there it is! The goal: Full-blown socialized medicine. Create a crisis, cause people to lose their health insurance, drive up the premiums for the rest of us, and, voilà! Great Britain, here we come!]
Which is exactly how Canada got single-payer.
I would boycott, but I don't shop there to begin with.
Forever 21 is an American chain of clothing retailers with branches in major cities in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East that offers clothing and accessories for young women, men, and teen girls.
["Like, their stuff is so awesome!"]
Gee, if only someone could have foreseen this kind of thing. . . .
[NOBODY could have foreseen that Obamacare would do this!]
I know. This is mystifying that NOBODY saw this coming. Utterly out of left field.
[Utterly out of left wing.]
I read this and immediately texted my daughter that she cannot shop there any longer.
["omg! i'm like totally so not doing that!"]
I'm not sure how many more places I can boycott. I'm already boycotting Disney, Darden restaurants, regal cinemas, anything with angie harmon, fox, walmart to a certain extent and now forever 21.
[BOYCOTT EVERYTHING! EVERYONE, MAKE YOUR OWN CLOTHES!]
Yet they claim to be a Christian company. Printing John 3:16 on all bags.
[OH NOES111 That's the WORST! They print a BIBLE reference--EWWW!!!--on the bottom of their bags! Bring them up on a hate crime! Have you EVER seen such a terrible thing???]
You will not have anywhere to shop, get gas, or live, but you can boycott.
[A small price to pay!]
They have a location directly across from the cable car turnaround in San Francisco ideally suited for direct action.
[A DUAC call to arms! San Francisco, here we come! It's a Million DUmmie March!]
I really liked the idea one poster on their Facebook page had. She wasn't going to boycott...she was going to stand outside their store nearest her on public property and hand out copies of their letter during their back-to-school sale.
[That will BRING THEM TO THEIR KNEES, the corporate b*st*rds.]
Well, why not write a letter to the architect of this edifice of HC...one President Obama, and thank him?
[Oh, thank you, our dear Lord Obamassiah! Thank you so much for destroying businesses, costing us jobs, and reducing us to part-time work, all so we can have affordable health insurance! We know you have our back. And we know you're just playing three-dimensional chess that we lowerlings can't possibly hope to understand, so that one day, one day, we can achieve the greater goal of UNIVERSAL FREE HEALTH CARE FOR ALL!!! WHEEEEE!!!!]
Going Shopping with my teenage granddaughter next Tuesday. We are going for our annual back to school shopping trip at Northpark Mall in Dallas. Avery likes to go to the big F21 store, but my dollars will not be spent there anymore.
["Sears?? You're expecting me to like get my clothes at SEARS?? Like, no way!"]
Nation wide boycott of Forever 21. Drive them out of business.
[NOT ONE D*MN SCRUNCHIE DAY!]
My boycott list is getting mighty long.
[My boycott list is becoming a bucket list.]
ACA is a clusterf***.
[Yes, but it's YOUR clusterf***. Own it.]
It is going to take a massive worker strike, at every level to wake this country up. . . .
[GENERAL STRIKE! GENERAL STRIKE! SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING! YES, IT WILL WORK THIS TIME!]
Those associates are becoming passing acquaintances. LOL
Own it DUmmies. And if Øbongo changes the rules (as he has shown a willingness to do) your hours will be cut even more. Enjoy your Øbamacare - I hope you choke on it!
They blame Republicans and the private sector for ObamaCare, everyone BUT Obama and the Democrats is to blame for something that passed without Republican votes and there were rallies against all over the country.
these people are all Rachel Jeantels
How dare their G*d Obama and Pelosi lie to them!
Ya know, they could always get jobs at Heinz Ketchup. LOL
And for those of us who do happen to have insurance, the price is going up enough that employers are considering discontinuing insurance, or as in my case, my ‘raise’ this year was continuing of insurance.
Leftists are beyond redemption. I point and laugh at them, knowing their eventual destination.
Boycott fatigue is inevitable. Tiring them out will keep them out of our hair.
Funniest idea: a worker's strike. < snurk>
It’s Bush’s fault.
“Which is exactly how Canada got single-payer.”
BTW, there is one positive thing about Canada’s health care system (or at least something that’s less bad than the AFC) — it’s administered by each province and territory, rather than directly by the federal government. There is some scope for each province to do things differently.
—— They blame Republicans and the private sector for ObamaCare, everyone BUT Obama and the Democrats is to blame for something that passed without Republican votes and there were rallies against all over the country.———
This is why Rove’s strategy of “letting Obamacare collapse under its own weight is so mistaken.
Liberals are impervious to facts and argument, since Progressivism is more dogmatic than any religion.
Egad! John 3:16 on the bag itself?!?? Lessee, I forget that one, was it “From each according to his ability to each according to his need”? No?
“The market has failed and government has to do it now” the answer will be
Thanks for the ping
It beats a sharp stick in the eye* ...
