    first, health care should be a benefit they want to cover - I don't know why a food servcie would want to have sick peole show up to work

    2nd, the cost shouldn't be that bad, and they can either absorb it or raise prices or do some of both

    3rd, if they reduce hours they will either reduce service levels or increase staff - if they increase staffing, it will increase costs for hiring, training, scheduling and other HR issues.  I cannot believe that is less expensive than health care - but maybe it is

    When & how do we disassociate health care from employment?  Reduced benefits is getting to be a big deal everywhere - why can't we find a way to offer health care coverage to everyone regardless of employment or hours?  Especially with unemployment as high as it is now?

      Only when enough prople get out in the streets and demand it.
