I suppose this story is also your daily dose of schadenfreude:
AOL is trimming back its employee retirement benefits, a move the media company’s chief executive said Thursday was made necessary by new costs incurred by President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.
“Obamacare is an additional $7.1 million expense for us as a company, so we have to decide whether or not to pass that expense to employees or whether to cut other benefits,” AOL’s Chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong told CNBC Thursday morning. AOL is the parent company of The Huffington Post.
Say, chickens — that’s a mighty fine roost you have there.
