I get fuckin pissed. [b]Deceptive businesses who advertise a certain price[/b] and basically charge more because they can. [/quote] Ummm, Denny's is announcing the price increase. Give your patronage to business who pass the extra cost to their employees. [/quote] That is going to be hard to do. In 48 states foos servers make $2.13 an hour...The owner can not pass the cost on to them, there is no money in the checks...after taxes are taken out, most food servers take home check is about $50 a week.... [/quote] Are you really that dense, or is this some sort of joke? The extra cost would be passed on to employees in the form of fewer hours. The choice was, either increase prices to make up for health insurance costs or cut employess to part time status (under 28 hours per week) to avoid the health insurance mandate. This sub thread began with someone saying that Denny's should cut employees hours. Employees would suffer, right? The other option, higher prices the customer suffers. Right? Anyone who says cut their hours so I woun't have to pay more is selfish. [/quote]
President Obama's election victory ensured his Affordable Care Act would remain the centerpiece of his first term in power - but that has left some business owners baulking at the extra cost Obamcare will bring.
Florida based restaurant boss John Metz, who runs approximately 40 Denny's and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise has decided to offset that by adding a five percent surcharge to customers' bills and will reduce his employees' hours.
With Obamacare due to be fully implemented in January 2014, Metz has justified his move by claiming it is 'the only alternative. I've got to pass on the cost to the customer.'
The fast-food business owner is set to hold meetings at his restaurants in December where he will tell employees, 'that because of Obamacare, we are going to be cutting front-of-the-house employees to under 30 hours, effective immediately.'
