Responsibility, from the Wendy’s Web Site


At Wendy’s we are committed to supporting communities with a focus on children. We believe all children deserve a loving and permanent family and the support they need to reach their potential.

That’s why we support programs throughout the year that help kids in our communities. We invite you to learn more.

The Wendy’s franchise in Omaha has done this:

“Thirty-six to 37 hours a week.” That’s how many hours T.J. Growbeck works at the 84th and Giles Wendy’s restaurant. The money he earns helps him pay for the basics, but that’s not the case for all his co-workers. “There are some people doing it trying to get by.”

The company has announced that all non-management positions will have their hours reduced to 28 a week. Gary Burdette, Vice President of Operations for the local franchise, says the cuts are coming because the new Affordable Health Care Act requires employers to offer health insurance to employees working 32-38 hours a week.

Is it Wendy’s policy, to state one thing on its web site and encourage or even permit it’s franchisee’s to avoid the responsibility in this manner?

Please let us know. Then we will know where not to buy food.
