Obama’s 29-Hour Work Week: Colleges Cutting Professor Hours To Avoid Obamacare Mandate
Behold the new normal under Obamacare:
Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is slashing the hours of 400 adjunct instructors, support staff, and part-time instructors to dodge paying for Obamacare.
“It’s kind of a double whammy for us because we are facing a legal requirement [under the new law] to get health care and if the college is reducing our hours, we don’t have the money to pay for it,” said adjunct biology professor Adam Davis.
On Tuesday, CCAC employees were notified that Obamacare defines full-time employees as those working 30 hours or more per week and that on Dec. 31 temporary part-time employees will be cut back to 25 hours. The move will save an estimated $6 million.
The Obamacare insurance mandate for employers might as well be a tax on employees who work 30 hours or more per week. And, as usual, you get less of what you tax.
Obamacare is going to make America poorer while making insurance and health care more expensive and harder to get.Tags: obamacare
