Survey Says: Yes, Businesses Are Cutting Jobs and Hours Because of Obamacare

Frankly, this is getting boring. Some of us have been predicting this literally for years, wasting large chunks of our lives warning a nation that refused to listen. Mainstream media’s response has varied between “Is not!” to this:

thats-racist

 

And Obama was re-elected thanks to lying, a phony “war on women,” and more lying.

Anyway, clearly these business owners and managers are just doing it wrong.

Although the [Obamacare employer mandate] provision won’t be enforced until 2015 [because he illegally delayed it], some employers with 40 to 500 workers have already started adjusting for the new landscape, the survey byPublic Opinion Strategies found:

  • Some 31 percent of franchise businesses and 12 percent of non-franchise businesses say they have already reduced worker hours because of the law.

  • About 27 percent of franchise businesses and 12 percent of non-franchise businesses have already replaced full-time workers with part-time employees because of the law.

  • Some 41 percent of the non-franchise firms say they already see health-care costs rising because of the law.

  • As the franchise firms look toward the future, 28 percent of them say they’ll stop offering health coverage in 2015 because of the law. One-third of franchise businesses already do not offer health insurance.

How many times, and in how many ways, can one scribe write “I told you so”?
