Franchise owners come to Washington to plead for ObamaCare relief

Franchise restaurant owners have come to Washington seeking a change to ObamaCare that they say could prevent them from having to cut their employees’ hours.

The healthcare law requires large employers to provide insurance to employees who work at least 30 hours per week.

Franchise owners say the employer mandate threatens to erase their narrow profit margins and are telling lawmakers they need to overhaul the law before it’s too late.

“Employees won’t have the hours they need, and they won’t get employer-sponsored healthcare, either,” said Steve Caldeira, president and CEO of the International Franchise Association (IFA).

  1. Franchise owners on average do not do much for there employees to begin with.

  2. The horror! You might have to treat your employees like human beings! Better to spend the money on a lobby!

    This is why I never eat at these places. They treat their employees like shit, and the employees take it out on the customers. For every guy that gets busted spitting or slapping his junk on a beef patty, there are dozens who get away with it.

    It is possible to treat your employees well and succeed in business. Henry Ford knew it 100 years ago. Costco knows it now.
