Tyler, TX (KETK) — CNS news is reporting Thursday, the Internal Revenue Service warned employers in a new regulatory proposal not to come up with clever schemes to avoid Obamacare's employer health insurance mandate.
The IRS said it would soon issue "anti-abuse rules" to discourage employers from taking advantage of any regulatory loopholes.
Well, ok. You're doing what you need to do. Others are doing what they need to do.
A TV station in Nebraska is reporting hundreds of Wendy's workers are seeing their hours cut back because of President Barack Obama's health care law. Nearly 300 employees at 11 Wendy's locations in the Omaha area will have their hours reduced to 28 hours a week because the franchise owner says he can't afford to pay his employees health care.
An employee told the TV station "It has a huge effect on me and pretty much everybody that I work with." Gary Burdette, vice president of operations for the local franchise, told WOWT-TV that he can't afford to keep the fast-food restaurants open if he has to pay for his employees' health care.
You're going to see a lot more of this going on soon. And the same folks who thought this healthcare monstrosity was good will be affected.
Oh, and by the way let me ask you this.
Anybody taken a good look at your pay stub recently. How's that working out for you?
That's my point of view, what's yours?
