|By:, SA News Editor

An executive from the National Retail Federation testified before Congress today in an effort to convince the lawmakers that the Affordable Care Act should be modified.

The group believes a full-time employee should be based on a work week of 40 hours and would like to see the heath care insurance coverage requirement be lifted to 100 employees from 50.

Restaurant chains (MCD, BKW, DNKN, PZZA, YUM, WEN, KKD, BAGL, DRI, PLKI) operating under a franchise model have been impacted negatively by the Affordable Care Act.
