Reality Bites Back: ‘Dudes of Juicy Couture,’ Left shocked Obamacare is costing them work hours

The latest thing causing a leftist tizzy? Juicy Couture is joining the ranks of businesses that are forced to cut workers’ hours in order to try to mitigate the devastating cost of Obamacare.

Not just any workers. The Dudes of Juicy. No, for real.

Oh, dear. After you’ve picked yourself up from the floor where you have surely fallen in a fit of giggles, check out the rest.

RedState had more Thursday morning:

Yesterday, some person (or group) tweeted to me a link to a campaign (allegedly) by and for the current and former employees of Juicy Couture to demand “just hours.”

You see, according to the campaign, the hip and trendy Juicy is doing what other companies are doing in an effort to cope with the burdensome regulations and costs of the “Affordable Health Care Act” (aka ObamaCare)–the company is downsizing its full-time payroll to (mostly) part-time workers.

Surprise! Well, not if you have a functioning brain.

The group has taken the campaign to Twitter.

From their hilarious petition:

When we began working at Juicy Couture, many of us were full-time. Now, only 19 of the store’s 128 employees are full-time! Not only are they firing full-time workers and replacing us with a part-time workforce, just this month Juicy capped all part-time workers hours at 21 hours per week. We quickly realized that Juicy Couture is doing everything they can to not take care of its workers.

See, it was hard enough for us to make ends meet in New York City as full-time retail workers. But by keeping hours under 30 per week, Juicy Couture will no longer be required to offer their workers affordable health care – part of the Affordable Health Care Act’s plan to make sure more working Americans have basic health care. Further, we were told we’re only eligible for paid time off in case we’re sick or have other responsibilities if we work 1400 hours in one year. We did the math, and realized part-time workers reach that at 21 hours per week. This means that the vast majority of Juicy Couture’s workers will not ever get one single paid sick day.

That mean old company won’t throw extra cash at them so that they can live the New York City lifestyle to which they’ve become accustomed! Dear Dudes: Companies are in business to stay in business and employ people. Obamacare regulations are making that increasingly more difficult; the costs are staggering and burdensome. That whole “you can keep your plan” deal? Obama lied.

Shocked and angered lefties join the campaign.

SEIU’s digital campaign manager:

Students Against Sweatshops. Yes, this exists:

Because, you know, hip and trendy Juicy Couture workers not being able to get the highest iPhone plan is totally like the Triangle Fire. (Too soon?)

More shock and fretting.

The sane give them a little dose of reality.

Bingo. Elections, they have consequences. Even for the Dudes of Juicy (stop! our sides!)

  • Stupid Republic

    There’s not a line at the sports books here, however, the preliminary line that these two pictured clowns voted for Obama are 1:6.

  • Lexikin

    Don’t they get that this was the plan all along by their “savior”? Obama doesn’t want anyone who voted for him to get healthcare. THOSE LOOPHOLES WOULD NOT EXIST FOR BUSINESSES IF HE DID!. Lean FORWARD you liberal morons, your ballots are about to bite you in the a$$!!!

    • Ramsey Griffen


  • Spatial Awareness

    Isn’t this what these f*cking morons voted for????

    AAahahahahahaha!!! XD #WorldsSmallestViolin

    • trixiewoobeans

      Yeah, Hope and Change. Now they HOPE they get enough hours because they’ve got nothing but CHANGE jingling in their pockets.

    • richard40

      They not only voted for it, but then incessantly gloated about their “victory” afterwards. leftists seem totally incapable of linking simple cause and effect.

  • rennyangel2

    BAwAWAWAWAWAWA—sorry to say that, but you get what you vote for.

    The cost of a “free lunch?”

    Liberal ignorance and naivety that one actually exists, except of course when you and
    I are the ones paying for it.

    • BooMushroom

      You wanna talk ignorance? 21 hours/week x 52 weeks = 1092 hours/ year, not 1400. 1400/52= 27 hours per week. How can we expect these people to forecast macroeconomic shifts if they can’t even do simple multiplication or division with the calculator built into their iPhone?

  • 1azuce

    At least you have ‘free’ contraceptives.



    • socalcon

      Too bad that free contraception wasn’t available while we were screwed with Obamacare.

  • Jack Deth

    Sometimes it’s fun to just sit back and watch the Ant Farm run amok.

    • Canadian in USA

      Schadenfreude. :)

  • Joseph A White

    They’re gonna get it from all sides before its all said & done, too. Fewer hours..higher taxes…higher retail prices..lower wages…reduced benefits…and more folks seeking to take those jobs away from them…But hey!!! Y’all are getting free condoms and cell phones…that way y’all can “hook-up” and have safe sex with your pals. Welcome to Barack Obama’s “fundamentally transformed” America….Deal with it…

    • Canadian in USA

      Glad I can get free condoms. If the government is going to screw me, might as well do it right.

      • Scott Anderson

        You’ll wake up with one between your butt cheeks.

    • Ramsey Griffen

      Unfortunately the rest of us have to suffer

    —Obama & Pelosi, 2009

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Taking a good hard look at that poster, Team Rubio? Team Jindal? Anyone with clout in the Republican party? This outrage over Obamacare oppression sure seems to be a darn good place to start expanding the party base, as well as great material for questions to put to Barry, Harry Reid, and Hillary in 2016,.

  • Kevin

    If they don’t like what is being offered, just go somewhere else? Obama said the economy is getting better, high paying jobs must be plentiful!

    • Brett McMicken

      pick up a shovel and start digging……the obama fertilizer

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    While angry about Obamacare’s effect on small biz, if this means I can go to Walmart for printer ink, a four-wheeler tire, and tampons for the “Ms.” and see one less 10yr old with Juicy splayed across the back of her sweat pants, well then hallelujah. There’s one paragraph out of that 27,000 page law I like.

    If Obamacare allows me to slap the sh!t out of “Juicy’s” accompanying parent, somebody please let me know.

    • Catchance

      “Juicy’s” accompanying parent voted for Obama.

      • Lamontyoubigdummy

        First. Touche.

        Second. Multiple times… across several states.

  • 3seven77

    Well don’t sweat it guys. If you don’t want to work “just” 21 hours there are plenty of illegal aliens that would be glad to. And because they’re illegals, they probably get food stamps, Medicaid and a free phone.

    • digitalPimple

      Irony: people will end up needing 2 jobs to make ends meet and guess what? With the booming economy good luck finding that second let alone the first.

      • beebop1952

        Making unemployment look far more appealing …. one worker at a time. The new Democrat mantra.

    • Sheldon Cooper

      Don’t forget they get free healthcare also.


    Maybe next time research before you vote.

    • Brett McMicken

      they would vote for him again over the “rich, white guy”

    • Patrick Dennehy

      Sad thing is, they would vote for Obama again if he ran for a third term. They never seem to learn…

      • $18912735

        Well hold on to your hat, cause that is not so far outside the realm of possibility… especially if the Dems somehow win the house.

        Actually, if Biden somehow gets elected in 2016, we will all be WISHING Obama could have a third term.

      • Miss Clairee

        Eeewwwww. But he’s the coolest President EVAH….and the coolest Fist Lady EVAH! Those are some grown-up and rational voting decisions, right?

  • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

    Ahhh, poor people @juicycouture. If you voted for Obama this is what you get. Unfortunately, the rest of us have to suffer also. The clue to Obamacare as being a bad deal should’ve been “We have to pass it, so we can see what’s in it. Do you sign a contract first, then read it? Thanks for voting the boy king into office. SUFFER.

        I’m sorry about your retiree health care. Kodak did the same to it’s retirees.

  • Steve_J

    They are getting “just hours”, 14 to 21 of them.

    • Native American Potato

      Could always drop them down to “just five hours.”

  • dwpittelli

    “we’re only eligible for paid time off… if we work 1400 hours in one year. We did the math, and realized part-time workers reach that at 21 hours per week.”

    Well, they did the math wrong. 1400 hours divided by 52 weeks is just under 27 hours per week. So something else must explain the 21 hour maximum.

    • Stephen L. Hall

      It’s “new” math.

  • John Kerry’s Forehead

    Its a double whammy.

    1-It forces USA closer to gov’t controlled single-payer health plan

    2-More P/T jobs equals more jobs “created” under Obummer’s policies. Even tho we all know its BS, that is how it will be spun.

  • George Orwell

    “We did the math, and realized part-time workers reach that at 21 hours per week.”

    Just how many of them and how long did it take to solve that lengthy problem?

    Anybody that considers a one step calculation that you ought to be able to do in your head “doing the math” is lucky to have any job.

    • Native American Potato

      “We did the math,” would seem to imply that not just one person was doing the calculations.

      And they still came to the wrong total.

  • Mr Oni

    Dudes, Obama doesn’t work 30 hours a week, why should you.

    must be a shock to you clowns who voted for this regime to have to pull your heads out of your ***** and come face to face with the damage being done!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Carl Hardwick

    You’re all wrong. Those bonehead leftists would vote for Obama and any Democrat candidate again, again and again.

    Sure, they’re taking a personal hit because of Obamacare. But abortion, hatred of the US and gay rights are still more important to those leftists than mere money.

    I’m not kidding, conservatives don’t realize that modern leftists are stupid, liars and unrelenting. They’ll bury conservatives because we’ll stop fighting at a rational point. But leftists will never stop. That’s why we’re losing elections.

    • gridlock2

      The sad thing is, they think the solution to this government-caused problem is a bigger and better government program. They never figure out that the new program is just a new set of even bigger problems.

    True story:

    Late night gas station dude I see weekly for my gas runs throws a hissy fit about Romney during election. Got heated. I warned him at the time.

    2 weeks ago he was bitching. Whats up? My hours got cut to 28 from 35. Says he can’t deal with 28. Just wont do. This is BS. I gonna leave this place…

    I said unfortunately any new job you find may just offer the same. He looked confused.

    I left. Tried to warn him. I did my part. You can lead a horse to water… Too bad sooo sad my friend.

    • R.C.

      I have a similar story with a cashier at my local carry out. However with a modicum of common sense he acknowledged that “maybe you were right dude”. Now he is looking for a third less than part time job.

    • Billie Slash

      Good story. Karma’s a beeeotch!

  • ML

    It’s going to be a nice big revelation for those who voted for Obama once the “Affordable” Health Care Act kicks in….less hours and money…whaaaa?

        You got that right! Hand me that .06, baby sister. Time to reload. Since the “gubmint” knows we’re clinging to our God and guns, it proves a decided lack of brainpower to keep poking us with that proverbial stick they so love to wield. Eventually, we will respond in a way they are not going to like. Until that day comes, and it will, we gather together in little pockets here and there, watching and waiting for the other shoe to drop as it so inevitably will. I am a proud member of the “Clingers Club”! God bless you all and Happy Easter.

  • theBuckWheat

    The Obama demographic is going to find that ObamaCare in its full glory means that lower skilled workers are going to have two jobs, each less than 28 hours a week and zero benefits and zero overtime. To make ends meet, they will be working well over 40 hours a week and have increased commuting costs and energy use.

    Employers will also have higher costs, especially in HR but also in productivity, so raises will be less often and much less. In fact, any business that uses very many ObamaCare-limited workers will not be as prosperous as it could be. Liberals (that is, the Obama demographic) will soon be whining about all the extra greenhouse gasses emitted by people driving extra miles to their regular part time job #2.

    Screwed by their own socialist messiah! How does socialism feel now?

    • JR48

      And they’ll be fined by the IRS if they don’t cough up the big bucks themselves for healthcare.

    • nc

      Productivity will decrease because employees, tired and/or demoralized, will feel less inclined to do a proper job.

    For the leftist, a job is a means by which the government can extract wealth from your labor. There is no other purpose. Fewer hours = less wealth extracted.

    I’ll say it again…there are no unintended consequences from Obamacare. What’s happening is exactly what those Marxists who hoisted it upon us wanted.

  • King Leer

    Maybe they could raise the minimum wage to a “living” wage of say… $25 an hour?That should really set the full-time, entry-level job market on fire.

    They are hoping that the bread and circuses of the madminisitration — gay marriage, gun control, soda control, cigarette control — will provide enough distraction so that they don’t realize they are taking it up the butt.

  • gridlock2

    So, if a company lays off one 40-hour worker and hires two 20-hour workers, does unemployment go up, down or stay the same?

    • beebop1952

      OMG … three choices will tax the liberal brain!

    • Native American Potato

      Actually it all depends on the two 20 hour workers. If both were previously unemployed then unemployment would drop since it doesn’t matter if you work 1 hour a week or 100 hours a week it still counts as a employed person.

      If only one of the workers was unemployed before and the other is taking the the job as a second job to replace his cut hours from his first job the unemployment numbers would remain unchanged.

      If both new hires are working second jobs there to try and get to 40 hours between multiple jobs then unemployment would rise.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Poor babies, got the hours cut at their little juice shop. maybe they should find a real job & buy some big boy pants.

  • Larry Knight

    I am offended that liberals who voted for these people andwholeheartedly supported Obamacare are crying that they are losing their jobs or having their hours cut! Liberals stop crying no one wants to hear it. You people screwed you’re selves along with others. Nothing is free!!

    Good. Hope it happens to more Obama voters.

  • Jan

    LOL! They demand…what a joke! They are the employees!! Juicy is in business to make $ and BO is doing everything they can to take it away! Welcome to socialism!

  • RightThinking1

    “We quickly realized that Juicy Couture is doing everything they can to not take care of its workers.”

    It is easy to see from the awkwardness of that statement that they are confused. They could not find a way to phrase their complaint in an appealingly logical way, thus they devolve into a nonsensical expression, hoping that they can paint Juicy Couture (whatever that is) as “non-caring”, which is a hanging offense among liberals.

    It is as though “to not take care of” as been trans-mutated into an active verb meaning…, what? One imagines meetings among the management, “Okay folks, let’s get busy with the Not Taking Care of Our Employees Program. We want to see more time and effort invested in not caring, and we are ramping up the budget for that.”

    At least we still live in a quasi free enterprise system, you know in communist China if you have to go to the hospital you better have cash or insurance because otherwise you won’t get in, period! No free health care there, they know that would bankrupt them. There is no question that Obamacare is a disaster created by social engineering minded people who treat everybody else as if they were mere worker bees, working to support their lavish government paid lifestyles. The people who crafted Obamacare did not ask the right questions, did not vette the concept enough, instead they ramrodded it through. We the USA are going down the road of Argentina, Spain, Portugal, Greece. Everybody play, nobody pay!

    The cost of anything must be paid one way or another!

    gotta love people who have no clue why a business is in business…heres a hint its not to provide you with a set schedual or set hr or to even provide you with benefits. If your not happy either start your own business to compete with them and offer your co works the benefits and hrs and pay they want or find a new job its really pretty simple. Stop being lazy and complaining try doing something for a change in your life

    Obama deliberately set the stage for this to happen. He and his acolytes wanting to fundamentally transform this country know that it will take mass marches in the streets across the nation to force Congress to create a nationalized healthcare system. So, they are “punishing” everyone to raise anger to the boiling point. Skyrocketing healthcare premiums, doctor shortages because of cuts in reimbursement, loss of wages and benefits due to cuts in hours and employment status (FT vs PT), group appointments with healthcare providers to save money, etc., etc. while touching everyone except the governing elite, their cronies, and the ultra wealthy. Welcome to a new day in American politics. The masses will be punished until our masters get what THEY want – full control over our lives.

    So wait. People still buy overpriced pink sweatpants with “juicy” emblazoned on the ass? That’s so 2011

  • Michael Liu

    Looks like the “Affordable Health Care Act” isn’t so “Affordable” after all, eh liberals?

    Meanwhile…the Obama daughters are living it up on the slopes…last week they were in the Bahamas. Chew on THAT JC Dudes…

  • Malishious Intent

    No sympathy. This is what you get you idiots

  • Gmama

    Duhhhh. What did they expect.

    Unfortunately now they will probably qualify for lots of government programs that those of us with enough sense not to vote for Obama will pay for.

    Hey when you are only working 3 days a week (24 hours) there is better than a 50% (4 of 7) chance that when you are sick, you won’t be working that day anyway. So you won’t need a paid day off.

    “High-end retailer Juicy Couture appears to be capping workers’ hours at 21-hrs/week to skirt #ACA requirements:

    Uh, actually they are cutting hours to *comply* with ACA requirements.

  • Annie

    I did NOT vote for Obama either time yet my health insurance premiums went from 162 to 314 per month. Thanks progs…

    Wait till this thing comes on line:

    “…this robotic burger-maker that preps, grills, and assembles your Royale with Cheese—automatically—may soon replace human line cooks altogether while saving the fast food industry billions.”

    By “saving billions” they mean “not employing millions”.

    The day is approaching where menial entry level type jobs just won’t exist. This isn’t Obama’s fault, but similar to how he said he thought gasoline should cost $7.00 per gallon, he is just accelerating the process.

  • BlueStateRepub

    You voted for this, Libs. OWN IT! You saddled the rest of us with your foolishness, now OWN IT!

  • Lisa Dean

    Liberal complainers: did you really think Obamacare wasn’t going to cost you a dime? Or did you think all of us “racist, gun-loving” conservatives were going to float your medical costs?

  • Tantalus XVI

    Sarcastic conservative says
    #JustHours is #JustGreedy how dare you? Always more more more with you people. think of the hardwking americans! lol

    It must be so hard when reality comes along and kills your unicorn. We tried to warn them and they called us racists. Oh well welcome to the real world where the rest of us live.

    How is that Low Information Voter thingy workin’ out for ya?

  • Debbie Smith

    Oh well is all I can say if you didn’t vote or you voted for Obama you reap what you sow maybe you should have not been so blind.

  • busyboots

    It’s hard to believe that these people are/were so stupid.

  • RedSoloCup

    I don’t feel the least bit sorry for them. After all they voted for this mess.

    Obama’s toadies, you get the government you deserve.

  • J.N. Ashby

    Well hey! At least it created part-time jobs, right?
    Obama: 1

    ” Companies are in business to stay in business and employ people.” I beg to differ, companies exist to make money, employing people is a side effect.

  • Papa Dog

    It’s not like we conservatives didn’t warn everybody ahead of time. These folks chose to vote with blinders on (Obama is so hip, dontchaknow), now the chickens are coming home to roost. Sorry, guys: you wanted it, you got it, you own it. Kwitcherbellyakin

  • lana ward

    Obama lied to the country. Why not? He knew he wouldn’t have to face voters again!! Romney and Republicans tried to warn you but Obamabots wouldn’t listen!! Now we all suffer
