Insist on Cooks Who Can't See Doctors!

Olive Garden - when you're here, you're like family. A family with untreated tuberculosis!

NEW YORK (AP) - The owner of Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants is putting more workers on part-time status in a test aimed at limiting costs from President Barack Obama's health care law.
Darden Restaurants Inc. declined to give details but said the test is only in four markets across the country.
The move entails boosting the number of workers on part-time status, meaning they work less than 30 hours a week.
Under the new health care law, companies with 50 or more workers could be hit with fines if they do not provide basic coverage for full-time workers and their dependents.
Starting Jan. 1, 2014, those penalties and requirements could significantly boost labor costs for some companies, particularly in low-wage industries such as retail and hospitality, where most jobs don't come with health benefits.
Consider the implications of this, lobster/olive oil eaters. The first thing you should know is that THEY WOULD LOSE MONEY IF THEY PROVIDED THEIR EMPLOYEES WITH HEALTH CARE. Which means that if you go to any location today, there is a probability that one of the employees, who cannot afford to miss any hours, is carrying typhoid.

The second thing is soon those employees will have even less hours, and will probably have to turn to prostitution to make ends meet. Do you want a typhus-ridden hooker serving your crab cakes? For God's sake, eat somewhere else!

Maybe not Applebee's, by the way.
