Every action has a consequence. Business owners have complained about Obamacare from the get go. Now we have this:
Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter said he plans on passing the costs of health care reform to his business onto his workers. Schnatter said he will likely reduce workers’ hours as a result of President Obama’s reelection.
A little known caveat is that Obamacare mandates that only employees who work more than 30 hours per week are covered under their employers health insurance plan. And so now you will a major push to get employees into “part time” positions. Darden restaurants, the parent company of Olive Garden and Red Lobster, is also on board.
Peyton Manning: “What are we going to do to kick off Obamacare?”
Papa John: “How about one million workers pushed from full-time status to part-time?”
Peyton: “Good idea, two million part-time workers. I like it.”
Papa John: “No, no, no, no…one million part-time workers”.
Peyton: “Two million part-time workers is it. Let’s do it!”
Papa John: “Really two million part-time workers?”
Peyton: “Wait until you see what’s next. Two words. Medicaid expansion!”
