CCAC cutting hours to avoid health-care mandate
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | 11/15/12

Posted on 11/15/2012 9:08:45 PM PST by knak

Community College of Allegheny County will trim hours for about 400 of its part-time workers to avoid having to provide them with health insurance coverage, the school's president, Alex Johnson, said Thursday. Mr. Johnson told members of Allegheny County Council that complying with the requirements of the federal Affordable Care Act, informally known as Obamacare, would have cost CCAC $6 million annually for part-timers who have been working at least 30 hours per week. Affected employees include both adjunct faculty and maintenance workers. CCAC has an annual operating budget of about $110 million and is facing reductions in county support for 2013 that could be as large as $2.3 million. Mr. Johnson advised council of the plan to cut part-timers' hours as part of CCAC efforts to keep its costs under control.

Another story about reduced work hours due to “Obamacare”

A rising tide of impoverishment as hours are cut and businesses contract.

Obama has set the country on a downward spiral. Republicans want to “reach across the aisle” and “work together to do the peoples work”. The federal political class is so far out of touch the states may have no choice but to separate from DC, and not by signing some hokey petition.

Probably their workers who are getting less hours of work and will be mandated to buy insurance or face a fine were also bama supporters. They are so stupid they will blame Bush and still back bama.

We have less than the 50 employee limit. We are going to drop insurance entirely. Let them buy it themselves off the exchanges.

In the case of some here who are looking for work, I'm in that boat, it is going to get harder to find it. All I can say is "thanks a heap you dumb clucks that voted for the o-hole." A side note, about this talk of secession, hoe about this, we kick out the counties/states what voted for the obamanation. Well, in my case I'd have to move but I will if it happened. Better yet, send them all to Cuba or North Korea.

We had a meeting at work yesterday and they announced that they are re-evaluating hourly jobs and some will be pushed back from fourty hours to twenty eight. New hires will automatically start at twenty eight with the possibility of moving to a fourty hour position. On the bright side, they are going to bump up the pay for some full timers. (Goodwill Industries).

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

Unfortunately, you’re still presuming to believe anything that came from the GOPe pa-toot.

How easy did our side roll over on the CRs that were passed. Do you really think Mitt would have done anything if he had won (and again, he would have done it Unconstitutionally...but that’s OK, ‘cuz it was ‘our guy’??)

Repeal never would have made it through Congress; regardless of who won 11/6

I have some faith that the Benghazi incident may very well remove Obama from office, more so than anyone pursuing NBC, social security numbers or his massive voter fraud.

As for the Benghazi incident, it will make for some spectacular news coverage on Fox News and a few other places not totally in bed with the left wing. At best, it might even result in a majority vote for impeachment. But you will never get 67 senators (or even a weak plurality) ever vote to remove the fuhrer from office.

AFAIK, a 28 hr/week employee looks exactly like a 40 hr/week employee to the BLS.

For that matter, 10 28 hr/week employees looks MUCH BETTER than 7 full time employees!

Bingo. Factories will run two 5-1/2 hour shifts rather than one 8 hour shift.

No lunch breaks.

No health insurance.

No...

I don’t know ans Mitt was not my first choice but he was a lot better than Bammy. Then again, playing Devil’s Advocate, if we are too far gone to pull this out economically, having it blow up with Bammy holding the bag would be great karma. I love alternate history where we play “what-if” so a Romney Presidency would fall under that now.

As far as I know, it's applicable to the Fort Worth area which as nineteen stores. I don't see why they would not implement it across the board though.

You have to wonder how many people are using Obama as a scapegoat for poor management.

I mean, traditionally layoffs always occur every November.

Because it’s an election year, it seems to give some people a place to put the blame for their business.

I reckon if Romney won, there would be a whole lot of libs who had to layoff people because of “Romney” and not thier business acumen..

Thanks. BTW, you live near Pittsburgh like I do? Right now, I've been going "balls out" job hunting and it is tough out there. I do understand it is up to each of us to make it although there is one thing governments can do to create jobs, get out of the way. BTW, I was on my ham radio today and I talked to a fellow ham who is looking for work too.
