Hundreds of Jobs Lost as Store Chain Closes Due to ObamaCare and Minimum Wage Hike

It's just Obama making life better


By the time ObamaCare and the minimum wage get done wiping out jobs, everyone will need that basic guaranteed income that libs love talking about.

Citing Obamacare and an increase in the state’s minimum wage, the owner of Waterford-based Yankee One Dollar is closing down shop on all 23 remaining locations.

Its owner Keith Flike blamed the Affordable Care Act and the increase in the state’s minimum wage for the decision to shut down. Each store has six to 10 employees, he told the Post Star.

Those are just more employees who have been liberated from job lock to explore their painting skills, take some time off to write the Great American Novel, stockpile canned food, hustle part time jobs, cope with a car breakdown that they can't afford to get fixed, go from one social services agency to another to keep their families together.

It's just Obama making life better for them and for everyone else.
