Obamacare’s Part-Time Side Effect – Michigan Employees’ Hours Cut

As a result of the cut, Karyn’s hours were reduced from 37-39 hours per week to an average of 25 hours per week.  She says the lost wages equate to more than her mortgage payment each month.  She is incensed that she has gone from paying extra on her mortgage each month–with money left over–to the situation of having to dip into her nest egg.  “This is just not sustainable,” Ruley said.  “I can’t save for retirement.  I’m taking side jobs to make ends meet.  They told us to wait and see how great it was going to be when it was fully implemented.  Why couldn’t they just let us keep what we had, what worked for us?”

    But if you like your Job and the hours you work.. You can KEEP the job and the hours you work.

    That could have been said too.

    As for the payroll thing, I believe THAT could be fought and won. Using the logic of the paymaster being the county, one could make the connection for any payroll service's clients are a part of an aggregate operation.

    The Library budget is a separate entity, thus it is a separate employer.

    If it still has gone unnoticed by anyone, as if that would be possible if one has an IQ anywhere above room temperature, then one should see that both Party's are on the same side - against YOU.

    Hey, but as long as you swear that cutting your payroll had nothing to do with the perpetually delayed employer mandate, all will be well.
