2. From this morning's LA Times. . .
Darden Restaurants Inc. won’t be looking as good as expected next week when the restaurant company is set to release its second-quarter earnings, it said Tuesday.
The Olive Garden, Red Lobster and LongHorn Steakhouse parent lowered its profit and revenue projections for the quarter ended Nov. 25, blaming sour promotions in its eateries, Superstorm Sandy, its purchase of the Yard House USA chain and even its efforts to mitigate the coming costs of healthcare reform, also known as "Obamacare."
Earlier in the fall, Darden tested plans to cut back on healthcare costs by putting more workers on part-time schedules. President Obama’s healthcare law would slap Darden and other large companies with fines unless they offer basic health insurance for full-time workers.
The restaurant industry has bemoaned the requirement as a calamitous blow in an industry that operates on razor-thin margins. Darden has more than 2,000 restaurants and more than 185,000 employees.
“We are also committed to accommodating healthcare reform in ways that work for our employees and guests,” Otis said.
