Sodexo reverses Obamacare worker cuts
WASHINGTON—A giant food service company unexpectedly reversed course Thursday after bumping thousands of college cafeteria workers from its health plan earlier this year and pointing a finger at President Barack Obama's overhaul.
Sodexo's experience could serve as a cautionary tale for other employers trying to pin benefit reductions on "Obamacare." The company's cutbacks fueled a union organizing drive and campus protests.
Julie Peterson, Sodexo's vice president for benefits, said the company will make changes for next year to restore eligibility for many of those affected.
