A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very income equality President Obama says he is campaigning to fix.
Unite Here warned that due to Obamacare's much higher costs for health insurance than what union workers currently pay, the result will be a pay cut of up to $5 an hour. "If employers follow the incentives in the law, they will push families onto the exchanges to buy coverage. This will force low-wage service industry employees to spend $2.00, $3.00 or even $5.00 an hour of their pay to buy similar coverage," said the union in a
Without smart fixes, the ACA threatens the middle class with higher premiums, loss of hours, and a shift to part-time work and less comprehensive coverage,
Unite Here was the first union to endorse then-Senator Obama... Obamacare will cost our members the equivalent of a significant pay cut to keep their hard-won benefits.
Unite Here's document charges that the administration is putting union health care into a "death spiral." It endorsed criticism that employers will move workers to part-time status to avoid the requirement that those working 30 hours or more a week be provided health insurance
... it will inevitably lead to the destruction of the health care plans we were promised we could keep. And, as a result, it will lead to greater income inequality for the very segment of the population Obamacare should want to help most.

Barry’s response will, of course, be to raise the minimum wage........which he can’t even talk Rats into doing.
At $10/hour you won’t be able to get medicaid. But the exchanges are open. Good luck.
No kidding. They should shut up and enjoy the spoils of victory!
“These hypocrites supported Obama in both elections.”
I’m sure the union’s “understanding” was that their members would be exempted from any and all bad effects. They felt the promise that if you liked, you’d keep was aimed specifically at them. Obama has betrayed them. It was short sighted as in many states the Democratic candidate can not win without union support. So, either that candidate will run on eliminating Obamacare, or he won’t win. Obama has eaten his seed corn.
How about a minimum mandatory $5/hr pay raise for all union members?/s
Who wants to pay for health insurance when you can get it free at the hospital?
My local CVS is cutting hours, but it couldn’t possibly be because of obamacare./s
Open weeping from the Left...
BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! You voted for the commie bastard and supported his overpriced, crappy socialized healthcare plan. We tried to warn you, and voting has consequences. Kindly eat a turd and die.
Reap what you sow...
Yeah, but they get free aromatherapy.
So these folks actually trusted a man willing to sell out his entire nation? Is that what I’m hearing?
Now they have hurt feelings?
Buncha dumb ash holes. Most of them will still vote DemRat no matter what. Enjoy the change they voted for..Remove the fun and they got da’mental part down pat. Barry on chumps.
And the union fools still cannot figure it out, that the regime is setting them up to be a wedge for social chaos and violence as the regime further divides the population into the have nots and dependents. The dependents never seem to get the gist of their enslavement.
