At 30 hours you qualify as a full time employee under ObamaKare, so what are companies going to do to avoid the fine and not pay for health insurance...those that can will cut back on people's hours.

Under the system Darden is testing, employees are to be scheduled for no more than 28 hours each week. They can run over that if things get busy, but Darden acknowledged they are not supposed to exceed 30 hours.

At a new Olive Garden in Stillwater, Okla., former busboy Keaton Hasty said employees were routinely limited to 29 1/2 hours.

Well this is going to create alot of new jobs to fill those hours...afterall it's going to be cheaper to hire two part time employees instead of one full time under the new rules.

On a side note, when did 30 hours become full time? What are we Greece?
