Starbucks Won’t Cut Worker Hours, Benefits Ahead Of Obamacare

1,gif

Starbucks Coffee Co will NOT follow the lead of other companies that are cutting health insurance benefits or reducing hours for employees in anticipation of the U.S. Affordable Care Act, the coffee shop chain’s CEO Howard Schultz told Reuters on Monday.

“Other companies have announced that they won’t provide coverage for spouses; others are lobbying for the cut-off to be at 40 hours. But Starbucks will continue maintaining benefits for partners and won’t use the new law as excuse to cut benefits or lower benefits for its workers,” Schultz said in a telephone interview.

Last week, Reuters reported that some businesses are keeping staffing numbers below 50 or cutting the work week to less than 30 hours to avoid providing employee health insurance.

bastards!

personal thought:

This morning a plan to order a Venti, instead of a mere, Grande.

Tomorrow? Don’t know yet.
