If you patronize Denny’s, you’d better think twice.  John Metz, who operates 40 Denny’s restaurants and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise, has decided to offset the cost of Obamacare (Affordable Care Act), by adding a five percent surcharge to customers’ bills and will reduce his employees’ work hours. He justified the move by claiming it is ‘the only alternative. I’ve got to pass on the cost to the customer.’

Obamacare requires businesses or franchises with more than 50 workers must offer an approved insurance plan or pay a penalty of $2,000 for each full-time worker over 30 workers.

The program mandates that only employees working more than 30 hours a week are covered under their employers health insurance plan, chains like Olive Garden and Red Lobster are already considering reduced worker hours. Source:  Daily Mail
