The same week a Wendy's franchisee in Nebraska announced it was cutting employee hours to avoid paying for health care coverage mandated by Obamacare, a Taco Bell franchisee based in Missouri is doing the same.

According to News 9, Treadwell Enterprises trimmed its full-time employees' hours to under 28 hours a week, which is the limit for coverage under the new health insurance mandate.

Employees found out about the cut in December. Thus far, about 20 employees have had their hours reduced.

Under Obamacare, a company that has more than 50 full-time workers falls under the new health insurance mandate.

Treadwell Enterprises released the following statement to News 9 regarding its decision:

"Treadwell Enterprises, like most businesses, is still researching what the Affordable Care Act means to our operations. Regardless of the conclusion of our analysis, we will comply with this law, as we do all laws."
