We did a post here last week about Darden Restaurant’s plan to reduce employee hours to less than 30 hours per week so that Darden would not be subject to the Obamacare tax for failing to provide “government approved” insurance to every full time employee.
Darden’s “solution” to Obamacare’s mandates seemed obvious to all before Obamacare was passed…all except those in Congress pushing this monstrosity.
The law of unintended consequences, however, has finally caught up with Senator Dick Durbin (D. Ill.). It would be nice if those in Congress actually thought of these things before they passed legislation, but, as they say, better late than never.
Senator Durbin is now concerned about Darden’s plan calling it a “bad result” stemming from the Obamacare legislation. But, not to worry. Senator Durbin would like to “sit-down” with Darden and “find out what it is”.
Let me save the Senator some time. What “it is” is Obamacare.
Obamacare converts a full time employee with health insurance to a part time employee with no health insurance.
Nice job, Senator.
