School Cutting Hours for Some. Why? Ahhh yes, ObamaCare...

The Hamilton school district has told its substitute teachers they will be limited to working a maximum of four days a week in the coming school year because of the federal health reform law’s future requirement that full-time employees be provided with health insurance.

A memo mailed to the substitutes in late June said that the restriction resulted from a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that will require employers to provide affordable health insurance for full-time employees and their dependents. Full-time is defined as an average of 30 or more hours per week.

“This memorandum will serve as official notice that, as of the 2013-2014 school year, strict limits will be placed on the number of working hours of part-time/temporary employees,” read the letter signed by director of human resources Katherine Shilenok-Wright.

Why does it matter to you that they are substitutes?

Yea. You know when the congress members who voted for obamacare were pleading with Obama to exempt their workers from ObamaCare ... The joke is on the rest of the nation.

I actually helped train another instructor this summer who is also taking on a full load. She is also newly eligible for full benefits.

When discussing a factual news report. It doesn't compare. Jmo. Back up your personal story with facts showing a district doing as you supposedly claim as your personal story and we would have a real discussion, IMO. Just an fyi- Facts help. Till then, your personal story doesn't mean jack to me.
