Randall Tabor, who owns two Quiznos sandwich restaurants in Virginia Beach, Va., once aspired to triple the number of outlets he owns.
But after the federal health-care overhaul passed in 2010, Mr. Tabor says, he shelved those plans. The law requires that employers with 50 or more full-time workers provide health insurance to employees by 2014 or pay a penalty. Mr. Tabor, who employs 36 people at his two Quiznos shops and another restaurant, wants to stay small so he doesn't trigger the requirement....
Wikipedia wrote: Social Darwinism is an ideology of society that seeks to apply biological concepts of Darwinism or of evolutionary theory to sociology and politics, often with the assumption that conflict between groups in society leads to social progress as superior groups out-compete inferior ones.
Businesses which decide to continue with over 50 employees will simply pass the extra health-care costs onto customers by way of higher prices. Such prices will then be blamed by whiny customers on corporate greed, as if regulatory compliance & competitive pressure have no effect whatever on the cost of doing business.
Progressive politicans evidently get elected by economic illiterates, the products of schools dominated by Marxist economic & ethical doctrine.
This means these employees wouldn't have any healthcare if did open these restaurants? Apparently then he shouldn't open them, small businesses or any business has been having a hard time in supplying healthcare way before the Affordable Care Act was passed, q.v., Give healthcare a chance to evolve. Most Quiznos are inside gasoline stations in Lincoln, if I have a desire for one, I don't need to go to a separate shop for one.
