Obamacare Causes Loss of Full-Time Jobs
reprinted here, Julie Jargon reports that a number of retailers, retaurant chains and hotels have started or are preparing to limit schedules of low-wage hourly employees to less than 30 hours per week, in order to avoid the law's mandate to offer employees a minimum level of health insurance or else pay a $2000 per worker penalty.
For many low-wage employees, especially young single persons just entering the workforce, the difference between full-time and part-time employment is the difference between making or not making a living wage. Those workers are exactly the people that President Obama believes he was helping to obtain health insurance. Instead, his Affordable Care Act is costing them their livelihood. The healthcare law has run smack into the law of unanticipated consequences.
We can put an end to this tomorrow, if we have the resolve. Vote Romney-Ryan.
