At what point do you drop your political whining and realize that you're acting like a bunch of awful human beings?
According to a Nebraska Wendy's franchise, sometime after slashing hours to avoid ObamaCare for your workers — if ever. This is rotten and just downright mean.
We can't for the life of us figure out why anyone wouldn't want health benefits for their workers. Even if we were just talking about ONE worker not making the cut, that would be horrible, right?? Instead, we're talking about roughly 100 workers in non-management positions at 11 Omaha-area Wendy's who will have their hours cut to 28 a week.
Not only are you taking away healthcare, but you're taking away precious hours and wage that might be helping these workers to live their lives. Everyone should be ashamed of this.
Gary Burdette, Vice President of Operations for the local franchise and resident Bad Guy, said that his restaurants cannot afford to pay for health coverage for all their employees under the new Affordable Health Care Act. (Somehow "not affording" an "affordable" healthcare act seems preposterous.) We call BS, and that he's making life hell for a lot of people because of a hissy fit over policy.
Suck it up and be an adult, Gary. Quit ruining the lives around you because of your skewed view on politics. Humans have every right to be healthy, even at the offensive wages you're paying them anyway.
