The deluge is beginning. Once one large US corporation dumps their healthcare costs on gov and reaps savings, their competitors have no choice but to keep up their competitive edge by reducing costs also, unless they made so much money that they can afford to compete with ACA cost burdens.
You betcha. My employer switched carriers last year, saving us all some ching, and has cut all but Managers to 29 hours or less per week. We Managers get to do OUR jobs plus those cut hours, too! (I’m not complaining. I love my job!)
