The culprit, at least in part: Negative media attention that the company received after promising to test limiting workers’ hours as a way to dodge Obamacare’s insurance mandate.

Who knew that deciding that profits should be the be-all, end-all at the expense of your employees might not be the best PR move.

Seriously, if any of these restaurants that are biatching six ways from Sunday about the ACA just quietly upped their prices - no one would notice.

They're being vocal out of spite, and it's coming back to bite them in the arse. Who knew.
