8 bosses who screwed their employees after Obama’s reelection

Papa John's John Schnatter isn't the only "job creator" putting his workers' salaries in jeopardy
By Lauren Kelley, Alternet

Most of us have had a terrible boss or two in our day, but right now thousands of Americans find themselves with a very special kind of bad boss: one who uses Obama’s election as an excuse to threaten to cut their hours, roll back their benefits, slash their wages or fire them outright. Much of this worker abuse centers on the new law that businesses with 50 or more employees must offer workers healthcare options by 2014. Jon Stewart noticed this recent post-election “trend” and issued a strong judgment:

Guys, I get it. Providing healthcare benefits to employees costs money, and as a group you tend to prefer things that do not cost that (money)…. But own your layoffs and your policies. Let’s stop pretending that suddenly, with this election, bosses have been transformed into reluctant assholes. Obamacare is just the latest excuse to wriggle out of the social contract (that’s existed) for many years.

Below is a list of some of the employers who are threatening their workers’ job security in the name of Obamacare — and other bogus Obama-related rationales. (There are a few restaurants you might want to avoid if you care about the health and well-being of low- and middle-class workers.)

1. Denny’s/Dairy Queen franchise threatens “Obamacare surcharge,” reduced employees hours.

1. I know where I won't be eating.

As if I ate there there before, so it won't appear to hurt them that much. But their brands are now shit.

5. DON'T HURT THE WORKERS

 

These people are pure EVIL and stink like a dead corpse. If I find my self in one of the eating places I plan to leave a GREAT big tip so the workers can survive.

The workers get the bad end of the stick and the evil ones just become more evil.

I pray that the evil ones ROT and those who surfer can have a better and longer life.

CHEERS
