Now Playing Tracks




We’ll be updating the list of restaurants (where most employees make at or near minimum wage, by the way) and other businesses to boycott or avoid. There is absolutely no reason for them to cut hours or employees as a result of the yet-to-be-implemented parts of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).

Health insurance for employees is a tax deductible business expens—and the CEOs and upper management of these large corporations are all doing very well financially—as are the companies.


We need to step this up a notch.

Which of their competitors ARE doing the responsible thing and making sure their employee’s have Health Care.

Good Companies (for now)

White Castle - while the CEO has joined in the conversation about Obamacare hurting his company, they haven’t joined these others in refusing insurance.  In fact, White Castle has been providing relatively decent health insurance for almost a century.  With much better plans than McDonalds and Burger King.

Starbucks - Offers comprehensive benefits for part-time employees as well as full time.  They are considered one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For.

California Pizza Kitchen - Currently providing health insurance for employees who meet the full-time threshold.  However, they were bought in the past year and new management has slowly started reducing benefits.  So keep an eye one them to see if they join the evil companies.

PF Chang’s - Provides health insurance for eligible employees and they’re also one of the few restaurants that pay standard minimum wage + tips, instead of the lower restaurant minimum wage.

T.G.I Fridays - Provides health insurance and like PF Chang’s also pays above the standard minimum wage + tips.  They also provide domestic-partner benefits (yay)!

It will be easy for me to boycott these places since I eat at none of them now.
