  •  Wendy's cugtting employee hours to avoid Obamacare (0+ / 0-)

    I will now officially boycott Wendy's - first for the immorality of their position and secondly I don't want the poor employees to be forced to work while sick for lack of health coverage. That would certainly affect all of us. This entire situation is shameful.

      It's a local franchisee in Nebraska that is doing this, not corporate.

      Unless you're in Omaha, you may want to check with your local Wendy's franchisee to see what their policy is going to be before deciding whether to boycott them.

      •  You were probably one of those people who said " (0+ / 0-)

        but it was Sony Music that infected all those people's computers, not Sony Hardware", am I right?

        •  Wow, that's just clueless... (0+ / 0-)

          ...because Sony Music and Sony hardware are all part of the same actual corporation.  That's not the case here.  It's a false equivalency that any beltway media pundit would be proud of.

          Wendy's corporate and a local franchise in Omaha, NE are two completely separate companies.  Wendy's has limited control over it's franchisees as defined by the franchise agreement.  And as of this point, we haven't even seen what response Wendy's corporate will have (if any) to what the Omaha franchisee is doing.
