Forever 21 memo demotes full time workers to part time, Obama and Obamacare part time economy, Medical coverage ends August 31, 2013, Hours not exceed 29.5 per week

“Approximately 1 million more people could only find part time employment since Obama took office in January 2009.”…Citizen Wells August 2013

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“Obamacare Strikes At Forever 21 Which Forcibly Demotes Some Workers To 29.5 Hours Per Week”

“A firestorm broke out during the weekend over the latest part-timing impact from Obamacare (covered here extensively previously), this time in the form of a leaked memo by retailer Forever 21, which announced that some employees would be demoted to part-time status. The memo, which announced forcible part-time changes would take place on August 18 with full loss of benefits to take place by August 31, was leaked by a disgruntled employee on their Facebook page.

The highlight from the memo:

Company-wide, Forever 21 recently audited its staffing levels, staffing needs and payroll in conduction with reviewing its overall spending budget. As a result, we are reducing a number of full-time non-management positions…. As a Part-Time employee your regular schedule will not exceed 29.5 hours per week.

As is well known, with the ACA mandating companies who employ 50 full-time workers or more to provide health insurance coverage, one much exploited loophole is to cut full-time workers to part-time status, i.,e., have them work less than 30 hours. Or 29.5 hours in this case.  Following this forcible full-time demotion, employees will lose medical, dental, vision and voluntary coverage on Aug. 31 and will no longer accrue paid time off.

The memo is below:”

    Hey All,

    Isn’t it quite obvious that the “plan” is to force companies to stop offering health care so that everyone has to be in these “exchanges”?

    Open your eyes people, it only gets worse from here.

    I predict that the “fine” for not having health insurance will go up by a BUNCH in just a few short years.

    Either that, or……..our debt will double yearly.

    Hey All,

    Just for giggles, back in 2008, when Sinclair first brought his “story”, (ok, “technically” it was the fall of 2007), when Larry said that Mastercard didn’t have a copy of his bill, I contacted Mastercard and was told that for a fee, they could retrieve my records for 1999.

    I donated to him so he could stay in DC the FIRST time he went, not the time he went for the “Press Club”.

    And isn’t it ironic that after Larry walked off stage, he was arrested by Biden’s son, and supposedly was denied medication and such?

    If I remember correctly, this had something to do with Larry selling a car, or buying a car?

    I’m not stating Larry is lying, but what I will state is that he’s had PLENTY of time to give SOME evidence.

    I sort of remember some story about him being arrested, or detained when he went back to Colorado because he stayed longer than was allowed too.

    Where’s the report?

    An airline ticket, a reciept for an airline ticket, a credit card bill, cashed checks……………something, how about a picture from the graduation he was supposed to have been in Chicago for, I mean ONE picture.

    Larry has nothing but his word, and his word ain’t very good.

    Simply calling a spade a spade.

    I wish I didn’t have too.

    Where is Larry now? Is he still in the DC area?

  3. IB,
    I think the ultimate “plan” is to force everyone into a single-payer program, i.e., full-blown socialize medicine, and certainly agree that it is only going to get worse from here. I recently read somewhere that there has already been enough damage done to take months and years to reverse.

    Hey All,

    I don’t think there’s any better baseball being played than what is being played in Williamsport.

    Exciting games, good plays, and clutch hits.

    The only way I see to fix it is to remove Government from health care……PERIOD.

    Won’t happen.

    “Womens reproductive rights”………..blah blah blah for example.

    “Grandma and Grandpa will be eating dog food”……………blah blah blah as another example.

    and who can forget

    “What about the CHILDREN”………………..blah blah blah.

    We’re doomed.

    One last comment:

    Only in Obama’s America would a CLOWN be criticized for wearing the President’s mask.

    It’s a CLOWN for goodness sake.

    People are idiots.

    I’m out

  7. IB…

    Your talking about the wrong spade….


  9. …… People who sit on their a$$es, and do nothing, or produce nothing is the NEW WAVE of OUR COLLEGE grads. They are unable to do much of anything PRIMARILY because their only QUALIFICATION is the fact that they have read a few books and listened to a stream of BS from TENURED PROFESSORS who COULDN’T CARE LESS, whether they taught their students the truth or blatant lies……the professor still continues to collect his cut of the tuition money. Our alleged college grads are about as prepared to enter our industrial,or scientific world as a dead fish. Out of 50 graduates from several California colleges,and universities only 14 were able to pass an 8th grade standard achievement test. Doesn’t say much for the students or the institute of higher learning from which they graduated.

  10. the snotnosed little female college kids are intent only on getting laid as frequently as possible, and the male counterparts are too busy attending alcohol parties, and much of the time are too hung over to even understand PLAIN ENGLISH. Then the drugheads spend all of the tuition money doing their favorite narcotic, and end up either being arrested,or thrown out of the school, because of their errant behavior. I hasten to add that there are still a small percentage of true achievers….but unfortunately the percentage continues to drop as each year passes.

  11. IB……..
    It would not have surprised me if the RODEO CLOWN would have been arrested for IMPERSONATING the POTUS. I am sure that somewhere in the UPSIDE DOWN NEW RULE BOOK there is a law dealing with IMPERSONATORS.

  12. IB…you said…”I am sure that somewhere in the UPSIDE DOWN NEW RULE BOOK there is a law dealing with IMPERSONATORS”

    NOPE…no such law …only because we have the GREATEST IMPERSONATOR ever now sitting in the White House…so no such law……

    “Levin Attacks Birthers: Admits He Hasn’t Studied Issue; Declares Canadian-Born Cruz Eligible”

    Comments at ORYR:

    FALCON: “It’s exceptionally arrogant to admit you haven’t studied the issue and then degrade those who have. That’s what we call a Bonehead where I come from.

    Further, it takes a tremendous jackass to proclaim a potential ineligible candidate eligible when you admit you couldn’t be bothered to spend even a few hours educating yourself.

    If Levin had a valid argument – he would have offered it. He doesn’t.”

    GaryW: “Hey Levin…the Cruz issue is a slamdunk…he’s NOTELIGIBLE to be POTUS…the guy confronted you because you have screwing with the birthers for 4 years. You hold yourself a Constitutional expert but you, Levin, are a fraud…all Levin cares about is selling books. And disrespectful?.Look in the mirror Levin….you won’t even allow a discussion or debate on this issue. You are rude and arrogant whenever someone wishes to have a discussion about this issue.”

    “Dual-Citizen: Sen. Cruz Will Renounce Canadian Citizenship; Media Ignore Obama Forgeries”

    GaryW’s comment at ORYR: “Won’t change the fact that he WAS a Canadian citizen! LMAO! “Please…please I want to be president just like the Kenyan!”

    And Mark Levin….

    Just how is it that one can argue that Senator Ted Cruz, born in a foreign country (Canada) of a non-U.S. citizen father, can qualify as a candidate for the presidency under the requirements of Article II that he be a “natural born citizen”? You playing us for fools?

    Constitutionalist my ass. Levin you a book-hawking fraud!”
    GaryW is Gary Wilmott:

  19. Gordo……
    Many months back I thought Levin was the genuine article. I have since CHANGED my view to “FULL OF HIMSELF”. He unconsciously sometimes CONTRADICTS himself. This tells me that I should be questioning what he tries to pass off as the truth to WTP.

    If you are a senior who has an ADVANTAGE PLAN for your primary healthcare…..WATCH OUT ….the Advantage plans are soon going to come to a screeching halt. Remember you surrendered your Medicare status to get the Advantage plan. You will NOT be able to return to Medicare. Technically it NO LONGER EXISTS. If your Advantage plan is also shut down you have only one option to be put into the alleged OBAMACARE. If you refuse you will be fined heavily. That is what is just around the corner folks. National Association of Insurance underwriters are saying be PREPARED to BE BLINDSIDED.

  21. bye bye all ………..have a great day today, and GODBLESS.

  23. Good Morning All! CW – have you seen this? It might be something to explore.

  24. CitizenWells,
    One of the fundamental laws of Physics is that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. I believe this applies to life. When environments change, life changes to adapt to the new environment. In politics, when the government makes a change, there is an almost immediate response by business to adapt, or react. Reasonable people expect this reaction, they anticipate that any new policies by the Government will result in response in the world. Most intelligent people realized that with a non-recovery recovery, businesses would resort to changing the game to remain viable. This should have been an anticipated outcome, a predictable response. Two things remain perplexing for me; 1) Why didn’t the media and the Democrats realize the danger and outcome in 2009? 2) What are the UNFORSEEN consequences of the new Health care takeover?

  25. What in the world happened to us?

    In a video featuring Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, the TV star – in what appears to be a religious sermon – declares his pro-life stance on the issue of abortion. When discussing the ethics of, and that there’s even a debate on, the issue, he asks, “What in the world happened to us?”

    “Listen, from the time you started inside your mother’s womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right, you have the God-given right to life for crying out loud. You’re this long (pointing to his finger). You’re a week old inside your mother. They suck you out of there when you’re about like that (point to finger again). You wouldn’t be here tonight!

    “And, when you got to be the size of my thumb, they suck you out. You wouldn’t be here. Then, you grow a little bigger, like my fist – and finally eight, nine months later you come out.

    “And we debate whether it’s a – some woman’s right to tear you out of there a piece at a time! C’mon! You have a God-given right to live. And of all places, inside your mother – what in the world happened to us?”

  26. Well,

    I just heard Fox News comment on Ted Cruz duel citizenship issues and his upcoming denouncement of Canadian citizenship.

    However, For News mentioned the 1940’s nationalization act whereby “IF” one of you parents was an American Citizen, then you are an American Citizen also!!!

    They failed to read the remainder of the act, whereby U.S. Citizenship by your American parent, can only be conferred upon you “IF” 5 of those years after the age of 14 (making the person 19) was a resident within the boarders of the United States.

    They know full well the article in that law, but stopped short of saying it for Obama’s sake knowing his mother was only 18 at the time of his birth, therefore the most he could ever be later in life was a Naturalized Citizen of the United States, same as a Mexican Immigrant Status.

    Pathetic…I wish I had time to write Fox News and asked why they didn’t finish reading the paragraph.

    Time constraints.

    Gotta hit that “hard break”.

  28. Air Force Brat!

    William — apparently Fox has never read de Vattel’s “Law of Nations” or the Supreme Court ruling in Minor v. Happersett either.

    Getting real, real tired of media yahoos who are either too stupid to comprehend that there is a difference between “citizen” (ordinary), and “natural-born citizen” (eligible for the Presidency), or too lazy to do the research.
