Today’s sadness: I now have to avoid two of my favorite fast food places.
Roughly 100 Wendy’s employees in the Omaha, Nebraska area will have their weekly schedules reduced to 28 hours a week so that they will no longer qualify for the health care benefits that “Obamacare” mandates for full-time employees. A Taco Bell in Guthrie, Oklahoma enacted a similar policy.
Ah well, more salads and yogurt. w00t!
Oh, but I won’t be getting them from the palace of the hippy queen, Whole Foods.
When Inskeep asks him if he still thinks the health law is a form of socialism, as he’s said before, Mackey responds:
“Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it — and that’s what’s happening with our health care programs and these reforms.
I just see Mr. Mackey screaming in the style of Alex Jones “Hitler ensured a decent wage and healthcare for his citizens! And if you expect business owners to take decent care of the employees who enable them to live in the modern equivalent of a castle, then 1776 will rise again!”
So, the naughty list so far is:
- Papa John’s
- Olive Garden
- Red Lobster
- Hobby Lobby
- Taco Bell
- Whole Foods
Do you know of any good restaurants that deserve some extra business? Leave ‘em in the comments.
