Re: Obama screws GNC employees - Is this the masterplan to destroy the economy? GNC Employess - listen up
I was a manager for several GNC stores in Florida. This will make it almost impossible to even keep employees in the store for quite awhile. I imagine managers will be forced to work 80-100 hour weeks for who knows how long. That would suck! This is set to happen to at least 30% of ALL jobs in the US. I cannot imagine the havoc that will ensue!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25781251


The manager will also pay the price. They will work over 40 hrs a week and see no overtime. They will delete any OT hrs for fear of termination. It has been done many times. There is currently a class action law suite because of this very thing, against GNC.

Don't worry, this is just the start.

In the near future they will ban part-time labor except for those campaign donors who receive "waivers".

Once they get enough companies to pay "penalties" instead of pay for more expensive insurance....they will raise the penalties to be more than the insurance was.

They will also start raising the "penalties" they charge for not having insurance forcing everyone into the government system.

Businesses and citizens are currently in the "herding" phase.

The shearing comes later.

I own a company. I have seen my employees go from 95 to 25. I still offer health insurance but my competors don't. I am the same rate as my competitors but I see a rigged game. I will continue on until I can't afford it. I didn't pick this game but I am protected cause I still am able to provide for my family (all my employees)

It makes me very sad to read this thread but the truth is.......

It isn't just obo care that drives this...it is the bankers and their plan to only have two classes.

The wealthy - that would be them ...who will have every pleasure, all the money and grow more and more intolerant of all the rest of us

and us.........that would be everybody else in the entire world.

Their plan is to create a world where all of US fall into the category of the very poorest places in INDIA....barefoot, toothless, penniless, desperate, poor, sick and hungry.

all the while they dine on the proverbial milk and honey..the cream of everything.

I know they think that this is a great master plan but in their arrogance they forget that when the rest of US have nothing left to lose...........

All of US will lose it.

I have to wonder if they have accurate computer models of what that kind of chaos is going to look like, to feel like
and how they really believe in their narcissism that they will
all just be all cozy, warm and safe for any extended period of time.....NOT. And, I don't need a computer model to understand that.

I do not remember where I heard this, so I cannot give credit. If anyone knows, I'd be delighted to hear...

One way to get around this Obamacare nightmare is to fire your employees and hire them back as sub-contractors or independent contractors. Theyd be responsible for paying their own taxes. Eliminate the employer/employee relationship.

Just like the thread about the doctors walking out of the meeting about Obamacare and the other instance of doctors charging cash and accepting no insurance, we the people must find a way around this to show our views (or save our company). Being forced into a corner makes you think outside the box.

Hope this helps somebody out there!

So if people no longer work 40 hours a week, will they reduce the China made trinkets they buy. Will they spend more time with their families? Stop driving and wasting gas because they can?

Ever wonder where all this might lead? Less materialism, wasting of resources, less pollution and garbage. Keeping your old cell phone. LOL

Anyone from GNC want to speak on this?

What about anyone who had their hours cut?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34399175


I worked for GNC for about 2 years part-time while getting my master's degree. That ended about 1 1/2 years ago. Screw GNC, they are selling everything for at least a 50% markup.

While I was working there it was assumed that I would never work more than 30 hours. On weeks when I did work more than 30 it would be adjusted the next week to make sure I did not work more than 60 hours in 2 weeks (since we got paid every two weeks). I quit when I found out my time card was changed and hours subtracted when I worked over 60 hours in two weeks. I complained to corporate after quitting and received back pay for those hours in which I was not compensated. Currently, GNC is facing a case action lawsuit for this very reason.

I am a regional sales director for GNC(General Nutrition Centers). that's right the vitamin and supplement company. We rely heavily on our part time sales associates and now we are going to screw them all. We just had a national sales meeting. starting withing weeks, are sales associates will only be able to work a max of 29 hrs per week!

That is right fold, 29hrs is the limit. You know why?

ObamaCare!!!!

Some of our part time associates work 40 or more hours a week between different stores. This will force them to find other jobs to supplement their income, or steal from us.

Please tell me how this will help the economy?
It is all a big secret, they (GNC Brass) are unsure of how to tell our employees without causing major issues with morale.

Why did people vote for someone who is hell bent on destroying everything that made America great

Other companies are doing this as well. Is this how the next Civil War begins?

You suck and they will still be able to get Obamacare. Your companies policy of undercutting wages to avoid providing insurance is going t come back to haunt you.

Re: Obama screws GNC employees - Is this the masterplan to destroy the economy? GNC Employess - listen up
let's go down the rabbit hole:

1. GNC is a huge corporation
2. Obamacare is a disaster

Obamacare states that all employees are required to be covered by health insurance by the corporation except those employees working 29 hours or less, which are considered part time or seasonal.

So, the corporation is going to cut everyone hours to 29 or less to avoid paying healthcare for their employees -

now that's loyalty

and ... on top of that, some of those "part time" workers work 40 hours or more a week! Which would make them full time employees due full time employee benefits, which obviously are not being honored by calling them "part time employees"

Anyway, that's what I read from OP's sad tale and blame deflect.

It seems the only "losers" in all of this are ... once again ... wait for it .... THE PEOPLE!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28689320


Very well stated.

A lot of these people will now qualify for reduced, or free, Obamacare. Perhaps other benefits as well. They go from payers, to takers... not because they want to, but because they need healthcare.

Then, the Democrats will tell them that if they don't vote for them, the Republicans will take those benefits away.

By that time, they are not even living from pay-check to pay-check -- and they can't take the chance that they would lose the benefits.

They vote Democrat...

The Democrats completely takeover...

We lose our gun rights and no telling what else..

Collapse is the end result... but the American people have been screwed and cannot adequately defend ourselves.

Democrats will shed their false name, and simply admit to being communist progressives.

THE END.

Actually, the cutting back to below 30 will not work as the IRS is going to audit your history and if they catch you doing this there will be fines.

Don't worry, this is just the start.

In the near future they will ban part-time labor except for those campaign donors who receive "waivers".

Once they get enough companies to pay "penalties" instead of pay for more expensive insurance....they will raise the penalties to be more than the insurance was.

They will also start raising the "penalties" they charge for not having insurance forcing everyone into the government system.

Businesses and citizens are currently in the "herding" phase.
