Skip to comments.Obamacare impact: Cutting hours, going part time
Posted on 01/19/2014 5:56:19 PM PST by Libloather
Many of his students who work to pay for their education and living expenses are complaining about being cut to 28 hours.
Theyre saying they couldnt pay their bills at 40 hours, so now theyre having to get a second job, Diaz said. That is the new trend.
But its not just restaurant workers and sales clerks who are feeling the squeeze.
Universities and community colleges that rely heavily on part-time faculty have had to make the hard choice of cutting the number of classes they teach because the schools cant afford to offer them health insurance.

Brought to you by the Democratics.
disaster? no. it’s change
how’s that working out for you?
The activist commie lib Democrats and their Marxist brothers have done it again. Stupidity does have consequences.
Normal/standard working Hours have been reduced since the 1800’s. Perhaps it’s just more progressive progress.
The better to make them all give up and go on welfare, food stamps, SSDI, Worker’s Comp, Medicaid and etc.
We’re becoming more like Europe.
No, it’s vastly different now Paladin..I’ve worked retail a long time and what’s happening now is truly a zoo for people trying to even get by.
Retail is even cutting ‘part-time’ hours...Some with just eight hours weekly....others with four....and full-timers down to the minimal...I think 27 or 30 is that and can still be called full-time.
Of course this is done naturally after Christmas...but not this soon nor to this degree.
..and students are living at home as well. Going to community colleges just to save costs.
I’m guessing the vast majority of universsity types voted democrat. I have no pity for them whatsoever.
According to Bamster, none of this matters, because some people got coverage that they didn’t have before. Everyone who suffered as a result is just collateral damage to him.
And what happens after that money runs out?
All the thieves in government who stole America blind get to sit back on their fat wallets for a few years.
Until they realize the people they put out of work were the ones that were the same people that were financing their very existance.
Then what happens?
That’s the $64,000 question, isn’t it?
Look at the bright side. It’s obviously improving the unemployment stats. Which I predicted when the whole concept of “Obamacare 29ers” was first explained.
Ain't it great?
Drives ya friggin' nuts... Buncha screaming howler monkey morons!
As an aside, Uneasy Rider by Charlie Daniels just popped up on my 'puter! Yay!
The real reason unemployment is dropping. Someone working 29 hours doesn’t show up in unemployment Companies are hiring 2 people for what used to be one, but each work half time.
Karma. Most of these rats wanted this.
What a bunch of whiners!
They could become artists, writers, photographers .... pursue their happiness.
I know a 5 or 6 of these adjunct ‘professors’ ... all have had their (already part time)hours cut further ... all big Obama supporters.
They do not see the connection.
Um, not to completely contradict you, but please who in the GOP is for buying American?
The ones I know all blame the insurance companies.
But just remember, last night all the Hollywood people patted themselves on the back for all they do to help mankind. And that’s not sarcasm. They really believe what they do is important.
Nephew-in-law has several small businesses set up as separate LLC’s - together they employ more than 50 minimum wage workers, but because they’re run separately, it turns out they don’t have to buy insurance for their employees - workers come to him expecting insurance, and he tells them to go to the exchanges “if they can get on” - after they check the exchanges, they come back complaining that what they find there is much too expensive for them to afford - he also says businessmen he knows are hoping for a raise in the minimum wage - says it will give them an excuse to raise their own prices some, blame it on the new legal requirement, and actually raise their own profit margin a bit - funny how that all works....
My cousins husband this past Thanksgiving blamed George Bush!
I have co-workers who are strident liberals, they cannot stand facts.
My job’s been providing health insurance for decades, so I’m not too worried about my hours being cut for reasons other than slow business. However, Obamacare’s new “rules” mean I won’t be able to sign up for the insurance until November of this year, and I started in September of last year. And of course, the health insurance I was already on got cancelled because of Obamacare.
Wonder how loud cries like this’ll get before Obama acknowledges them, and what his “solution” will be when he finally does.
Dear leader probably will as well if he ever bothers to answer the critics.
He doesn’t have to worry about re-election, the Supreme Court’s ruled the key part of Obamacare constitutional, and he’s made it clear he’s willing to act without Congressional approval, so I doubt the opinion of peons matters to him anymore.
