Some low-wage restaurants, hotels and retailers have begun or are planning to limit the schedules of staff to below 30 hours a week to avoid having to provide them with health insurance or face a penalty of at least $2,000 per worker, as prescribed under the Healthcare Act. Darden Restaurants (DRI) is among those modifying its policies, although Marriott (MAR) and Costco (COST) have no plans to change employee hours.

    Great news for the workers! They make less from reduced hours, and they don't get benefits that are provided in most other civilized societies. Then the GOP candidate calls them "moochers" and dependents, victims, implying they are lazy, good for nothing losers--real nice mindset, what an accurate view, huh?
