>> Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants are putting more workers on part-time status in a test aimed at limiting the impact of looming health coverage requirements. The test entails increasing the number of workers on part-time status, meaning they work less fewer than 30 hours a week. Under the new health care act, companies will be required to provide health care to full-time employees by 2014, which would significantly boost labor costs for businesses. <<
