Taco Bell Cuts Employee Hours Due to Affordable Care Act

Health bill continues to harm those it was supposed to help


A Taco Bell in Guthrie, Oklahoma cut its full-time employees' hours down to 28 hours a week (and lower) in order to avoid paying for their health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, also known as 'Obamacare,' reports 9 News (video below).

Taco Bell employee Johnna Davis, a mother of three, has seen a 200 dollar cut in her pay since the new policy went into effect.

Davis told 9 News: "What we were being told was one thing, and that was, 'we're going to offer benefits, we'll just keep all of our full time employees' and then come December, their whole story changed."
