RPT: Local Gov'ts Cutting Employees' Hours to Avoid ObamaCare
The health care mandate known as ObamaCare requires many employers to provide health insurance to employees who work at least 30 hours per week. But now, however, some reports are surfacing that even local governments across the country are finding a way around what they fear could be exorbitant costs of implementation by simply cutting back on their employees' hours.
"It is changing the workplace profoundly," said Fox Business Network's Stuart Varney on Friday. "It is hurting lower-paid people in particular."
He added, "now, we've got cities, towns and states across the country going to part-time work instead of full time work because of ... ObamaCare."
