In recent years, the issue of Health Care has been a serious hot tamale of an issue. As well intentioned as free services for everyone may be, there will be a bracket of people hit the hardest.
According to this New York Times Article, the companies that will get hit the hardest will be ones that use lots of workers for lower wages such as restaurants and other service industry companies. Small business owners, such as Dairy Queen franchise owners, might take a hit hardest of all. In certain cases, employers will have to make up the difference to the tune of 6000 dollars per individual employee healthcare plan.
This is all still in the works however (government gridlock and all) and the full effects of the modifications won’t be known until they go into full effect.
