Dunkin’ CEO speaks out about ObamaCare

Dunkin’ Donuts CEO Nigel Travis reportedly told the Financial Times that he is requesting a change in how ObamaCare regulations identify full time employees. Due to regulations set forth by ObamaCare, Dunkin’ Donuts is required to provide health care coverage to all its full time employees. The law stipulates that any company with over 50 employees must do so.  The law defines a full time employee as an individual that works more than 30 hours a week.

Due to ObamaCare, firms that typically pay workers minimum wage are cutting back on hours and employees are losing work. For this reason, Travis is asking the U.S. government to set the threshold for full-time to 40 hours, rather than 30.

In addition to Travis, the Financial Times quoted David Dillion, CEO of Kroger Company, who said ObamaCare is “not workable.” In some cases, the penalty for not providing the mandated healthcare coverage is less than the healthcare expense.
