Pennsylvania restaurants will be forced to provide health insurance for all employees who work more than 30 hours per week when Obamacare requirements go into effect in 2015.

Members of the Pennsylvania Restaurant and Lodging Association met in Harrisburg on Monday night to discuss changes to the industry as a result of Obamacare.

“Obviously we want to have people insured, but the costs can be significant,” restaurant owner John Melody told CBS affiliate WSEE-PA. “It’s a balancing act, and we’re here today to learn more about that for sure.”
