                          I have not mentioned the Affordable Health Care Act for some time.  It is known to most people as Obama Care.                    It should be called the Un-affordable Health Care Act, because in 6 months, millions of Americans are going to               realize that it is not free.  This is the act that was passed by Congress without being read by the Democrats in the Senate                         that passed it.  Louisiana Senator Landrieu is trying to run for re-election with it tied around her neck…after all , without her vote,  it would not have passed.      As you know, all of you took a pay cut on January 1 st  of 2013 when you started having 3% of your pay deducted to help pay for the Un-affordable Health Care Act. That was just your first payment on the Free Health Care you thought you were going to get because that is what the President told everyone.  So right now each check is 97% of what it was last year and 3% goes straight to the government. Here is how it is going to affect every American come January 1 st , 2014. Companies are allowed to deduct up to 9 ½ % of every employees’ pay to pay for the Free Health Care in the Un- affordable Health Care Act. So if you make $8.00 an hour…B&G is going to deduct 76 cents to pay for your health care.  So your take home pay before other taxes will drop to $7.24 an hour. If you make $9.00 it will drop to $8.15.  At $10.00 it will drop to $9.05.  I for one cannot figure out how that is free health care.      Now the President said no one will be forced to buy healthcare….and that is correct, each employee can sign a form saying they do not want the Un-affordable Health Care.  And that allows the government to fine you for not taking it.  But the fine is less than $100 if they can work up the courage to go after folks for not buying it….which is a lot less than 9 ½ % of your pay.     I will be explaining more to you about this Un-affordable Health Care law over the next few months.  But I want you to start thinking about what you are going to want to do.  Because the one thing I can tell you for sure is…IT IS NOT GOING TO BE FREE to anyone.  And even if you choose not to buy it, you will still be paying the 3% of your check you are paying now to support this horrible insurance program…that is making cost go up instead of down as we were promised when Senator Landrieu and her friends voted for it without reading it.    Gregory J.

    Carolina Wilkerson started as a shift manager at the Seabrook, TX. store back in 1999. She went on to become the RGM of that restaurant until 2009. She is now the Area Coach for the South Houston market.  Carolina feels that the key to her success has been that she works closely with her people. Many of them struggle with learning English but Carolina demonstrates that through practice and repetition you will become better every day. She lets them know that even though their English may not be perfect they can still be an asset to the company.      It's this type of leadership and passion for seeing others succeed that has made Carolina and inspiration to everyone in B&G.      When she's not running successful operations in Houston, Carolina enjoys spending time with her husband Andy & going to movies. Andy, by the way was the first employee B&G ever had over 30 years ago. They also enjoy spending quality time with their children Alex 9 and Collin 16. Thank you Carolina for all your years of dedication and hard work. You prove every day that dynamite comes in small packages.

SAFETY IS IMPORTANT  -  ARE YOU A SAFETY CONSCIENCE ??      The Bunn Water dispenser heats and dispenses hot water for food preparation.  The hot water dispenser produces water temperatures of 190 degrees Fahrenheit or hotter. OUCH!!!!      Water from the Bunn Water dispenser is for FOOD PREPARATION ONLY - Red Sauce, Beans, and Rice. DO NOT USE it for cleaning, or any other non-food preparation procedure.      Use the following tips when using Bunn Water: 1. ALWAYS use the approved plastic pitcher.   2. INSPECT pitcher for cracks. 3. ALWAYS wear rubber gloves or arm guards. 4. DON'T fill the pitcher more than 2/3 full. If you are walking with the pitcher, you need to allow room for the water to move from side to side without spilling over onto your hands or body. 5. NEVER use Bunn Water to melt ice in the ice machine tray, clean the cheese pump or metal food containers, clean the line, mop floors, etc. 6. NEVER leave the water unattended. If you pour the water and you are not going to use it, immediately pour it down the drain so it is not left out where someone could get burned.      Every Bunn Water dispensing unit must have a red anti-locking spigot. If you do not have the anti-locking spigot, please contact an HR Representative or your Area Coach and they will get you one immediately
