Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
I own a staffing agency that utilizes only temporary workers. When we don't have new clients to service, we don't have the work to give to our temporary people. If we allow the workers to work more than 29 hours in a week, we suddenly have to offer them insurance- and continue paying the partial premium even if we don't have any work to offer the temp. My 60-65 hour/week workers just got their hours cut to 29. That way, we can stay in business. That's how it goes.
There is no way to stimulate job growth while mandating that employers reduce their existing staff's hours just to stay in business. Maybe one day no one will have to work and the government can just provide for all of our needs. Until then, we need businesses to provided jobs to provide income to provide food and shelter. Just how it is.
"We need to ask some very tough questions of the senator from Illinois. It's not enough to be black, it's not enough to be articulate, it's not enough to be eloquent and a media darling. The only question will be how deaf an ear, or how blind an eye will people turn in order to turn a frog into a prince." -Eddie Huff
I don't know if it's been mentioned in the thread, but this single Denny's owner has lost his franchise and has been disavowed by Denny's corp.
That shows you the direction this country is heading, running a business will become tougher and tougher. If this doesn't turn around the whole country will favor Detroit.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

It's not even like this really affects businesses outside of that particular sect. And it's also not even like this is a sudden thing. Businesses were already affected by this. Obama's re-election did not suddenly raise the price to run a business. Businesses like Papa John's and this guy really need to spare us the theatrics.
