Darden Restaurants (Red Lobster/Olice Garden/LongHorn) Testing Stores WITHOUT Full-Time Employees Due To Obamacare!!
Using ALL Part-time staff, but for 2 Managers, due to the expected huge increase in employee costs.
How UNEXPECTEDLY UNEXPECTED!!

From the Orlando Sentinal:
Orlando-based Darden Restaurants has stopped offering full-time schedules to many hourly workers in at least a few Olive Gardens, Red Lobsters and LongHorn Steakhouses.

Darden said the test is taking place in "a select number" of restaurants in four markets, including Central Florida, but would not give details. The company said there has been no decision made about expanding it.

In an emailed statement, Darden said staffing changes are "just one of the many things we are evaluating to help us address the cost implications health care reform will have on our business. There are still many unanswered questions regarding the health care regulations and we simply do not have enough information to make any decisions at this time."

Surprisingly, Darden Restaurant’s CEO has been a major Obama donor in the past. Of course, thise DEMOCRAT CEO, an evil 1%'r, won't be cutting his own hours, now will he?

Darden, the world’s largest casual-dining company, and one of the nation’s 30 largest employers, said it offers health insurance to all its approximately 185,000 employees. Many are offered a limited-benefit plan. That type of coverage is being phased out under health-care changes, which will ban annual limits for most plans.
How's that Hopey-Changey thingy workin' out for ya, eh?

White Castle is considering the same thing, NO EMPLOYEE may get over 28 hours per week.

If I were the owner of a company, corporation, business or concern that is going to be affected by Obamacare, and I could offload it at a price that would keep me in good comfort the rest of my life, I’d friggin sell it and hide the money in some form that the government could not touch effectively.

If Obama wins reelection, I expect a LOT of small biz owners to sell out, or close, and a a lot of large stock holders to bail. They’re gonna check out, and try to outrun the chaos.

I don’t blame them.

I don’t blame the CEO, actually. This is just like so many other Democrat job-killing laws.

No one never said everybody is equal in Corporate America.

He has a fiduciary responsibility to his shareholders to limit costs and work within the parameters of the law. It’s the lawmakers (Obama, Pelosi, Reid) who changed the game, and who should be blame.

The game has been rigged from the get go, and changed numerous times since. Your whole spiel about feduciary responsibility also contributes to whats wrong with the "game". The words by themselves are not bs, but put together you get a Bullshit phrase made up by a room full of overpaid crooks, in order to sound professional, and in the know. Fuck him, and the shareholders. How much could stock be worth for that shitty food anyway, People should be patronizing local owned establishments, not some corporate chain with crap food.

There was a thread showing a list of companies (McDonald's was on it) who applied for and received an exemption from 'obamacare' regulations.

Bitch please. There's a ton of people who've hired only part time for years because of the OTHER benefits that it denies the worker which cut profits. If they're doing it now, it's only because they've happened upon a new excuse to bring the American people one step closer to surfdom while the fiefs sit fat in their multimillion dollar mansions and laugh.

Nope...
Although the Obama Administration has declared 30 hours to now be the new "Full-time", for Obamacare purposes.

I have seen the future under Democrats, and it is multiple part time jobs for everyone.

It will become the norm for people to have their “morning” and “evening” jobs. Neither will amount to more than 30 hours a week, but everyone will have to work at least two jobs to make ends meet.

Goodbye 40 hour work week...

Goodbye quality family time....

 Quoting: Anaiah


Corporate profits are at an all time high despite the recession. It's individuals and small businesses that are being hurt. That said: Obama's idea of how to try and implement socialized healthcare as a piss-poor one. The for-profit nature of corporations in charge of it all, and the ability to patent your pills so that other people cannot offer you a price-neutral alternative, much like the ability to file multi-million lawsuits against doctors (which drives up the cost of what? INSURANCE for the practicing doctors) all contribute to the rising cost of healthcare. And given the way that insurance is MEANT to work, it's only going to drive the cost of it up further.

I think Obamacare was a well-intentioned idea, if indeed, the idea WAS to cover everyone's healthcare. Whether or not it was, it was implemented in a piss-poor way. The notion that we can keep insurance companies as entities with a 20% profit margin will only keep it rising. If anything, we should make healthcare not-for-profit for the most part, and pay in a percentage of our income in exchange for ACTUAL socialized healthcare. Otherwise, it's just going to contribute to a higher rate of inflation in the insurance market and healthcare fields as well. On top of that, calling it a tax when it forces you to buy a product from a privately owned corporation is unconstitutional and fucking retarded.
As above, So below.

To keep the same coverage I have now for my family of 3 will cost me $14,599 per year + $2k out of pocket before they'll do anything!
They also don't mention that at the same time he's decided to expand the company's restaurants to Egypt, Quatar, Dubai, to name a few of many more countries. (Who's he in bed with?) so trust me, they could afford to give us lifers a fair priced insurance! I could go on but I won't because they also made us sign a document a few months back saying we could be fired for speaking out. Thus the reason for posting Anonymously!

if you don't like the deal move on to a place which will wipe your chin and ass. or better yet invest your own money and open your own business.

He'll be gone in a few years and us lifers will be screwed, the stole our retirement in a sneaky move, won't read about that in the papers. Oh, and get this, Full-Timers get insurance, yet Darden is one of two companies in the country trying out new insurance. You get a choice of 5 shitty plans. To keep the same coverage I have now for my family of 3 will cost me $14,599 per year + $2k out of pocket before they'll do anything!
They also don't mention that at the same time he's decided to expand the company's restaurants to Egypt, Quatar, Dubai, to name a few of many more countries. (Who's he in bed with?) so trust me, they could afford to give us lifers a fair priced insurance! I could go on but I won't because they also made us sign a document a few months back saying we could be fired for speaking out. Thus the reason for posting Anonymously!
By the way, anyone on the West Coast should be asking ALL of our restaurants if they are testing their fish for radiation from Fukushima! (Don't eat any fish!)


By the way, Darden now owns and operates many other chains.

Oh,wow, this is so depressing.

I'm still steamed that congress doesn't have to live under Obamacare.

No death panels for them!
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?. . .J. Handy
