Forever 29.5: It's Obamacare, DUmmies--Own It!
The DUmmies continue to reel from the real effects of Obamacare, as it begins to unfold. The latest news is that the national clothing-store chain Forever 21 is moving many of their employees from full-time to part-time status, so the company doesn't have to suffer the punitive costs of Obamacare. Hey, DUmmies, OWN IT! This is what you voted for. Own it.
But no, instead of owning it, the DUmmies are frowning it. They're mad at Forever 21 for trying to keep their business in business. Why, in fact, this calls for a BOYCOTT!! The DUmmies are going to leap into action and bring Forever 21 TO THEIR KNEES! That'll show 'em! DUAC! DUAC!
We witness the DUmmie call to action here in this THREAD, "Forever 21 letter to all full time/non-management employees."
So let us now see the DUmmies fume, stir, and organize for action, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, marveling at the wondrous miracle that is the Obama Economy--what is this now, Recovery Summer 5.0?--is in the [Barackets]:
Forever 21 letter to all full time/non-management employees
[Here follows the text of said letter, which we now excerpt . . .]
Company-wide, Forever 21 recently audited its staffing levels, staffing needs and payroll in conjunction with reviewing its overall operating budget.
[I didn't know you could get overalls at Forever 21. But back to the letter . . .]
As a result, we are reducing a number of full-time non-management positions. This includes full-time Stock Associates, Sales Associates, Store Maintenance Associates, Accessory Specialists and Cashiers.
[Translation: stockers, salesgirls, janitors, scrunchie-crunchers, and checkout girls.]
Based on our audit, your position will be reclassified as Part-Time. . . . As a Part-Time employee your regular schedule will not exceed 29.5 hours per week.
[Forever 29.5. Just under the magic 30-hour mark, at which point--under Obamacare--employers are forced to give you health care. There you have it, ladies! This is what you got when you voted for your dreamboat Obama: Part-time work, just as long as no one can threaten your precious Sacrament of Abortion.]
[The DUmmies react . . .]
Time for call and boycott this retailer.
[PHONE CALLS! PICKET LINES! DUAC! DUAC!]
No, it's time for a change in laws.
[But, but, this is YOUR law! This is the Democrats' law! The Afforable Care Act! AFFTAX!]
Everyone gets benefits, part-time and full-time.
[And nobody has to pay for them! Except for those evil rich corporations, of course. Oh, wouldn't it be loverly?]
In the meantime, until there are no Republicans in Congress that is, a boycott is about all we can do.
[But wait, it wasn't the REPUBLICANS in Congress that gave us Obamacare! It was you DEMOCRATS!]
[Additional cost in dollars that Forever 21 would otherwise incur.]
better yet, lets not have healthcare tied to employment at all
[Or, as is happening with Obamacare, let's not have employees tied to employment at all.]
We gave them a 1 year waiver remember?
[I would rather give them a Forever-Plus-21-year waiver.]
So under ACA, the incentive exists to cut as many workers as you can to below the statutory level for ACA employer mandate - 30 hours.
[You're just now figuring this out, Einstein?]
What we have done with this law is clearly inflicting a great deal of damage upon the most vulnerable.
[But, but, we had to pass it in order to find out what's in it!]
We had our shot and we got the ACA. But it's awesome because (D) passed it!
[I detect a note of sarcasm.]
it is better than nothing.
[I vote for nothing.]
it has its staunch defenders.
[It has its stench defenders.]
We all know ACA is a stepping stone to single payer.
[Ah, there it is! The goal: Full-blown socialized medicine. Create a crisis, cause people to lose their health insurance, drive up the premiums for the rest of us, and, voilà! Great Britain, here we come!]
Which is exactly how Canada got single-payer.
I would boycott, but I don't shop there to begin with.
Forever 21 is an American chain of clothing retailers with branches in major cities in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East that offers clothing and accessories for young women, men, and teen girls.
["Like, their stuff is so awesome!"]
Gee, if only someone could have foreseen this kind of thing. . . .
[NOBODY could have foreseen that Obamacare would do this!]
I know. This is mystifying that NOBODY saw this coming. Utterly out of left field.
[Utterly out of left wing.]
I read this and immediately texted my daughter that she cannot shop there any longer.
["omg! i'm like totally so not doing that!"]
