Obamacare Takes Friendly Fire

Obamacare ‘Employees Feel Like They’ve Been Used As A Political Tool,’ Unions ‘Want No Part Of The Law’

 

Obamacare Call Center Jobs: ‘Part-Time, With No Health Benefits’

 

‘Half the jobs are part-time, with no health benefits — a stinging disappointment to workers’ “Earlier this year, Contra Costa County won the right to run a health care call center, where workers will answer questions to help implement the president’s Affordable Care Act. …information has surfaced that about half the jobs are part-time, with no health benefits — a stinging disappointment to workers and local politicians who believed the positions would be full-time.” (“Half Of Affordable Care Act Call Center Jobs Will Be Part-Time,” Contra Costa Times, 7/26/13)

 

·         “One recent hire, who last week learned the job would be part-time, said the new ‘intermittent’ employees feel like they’ve been used as a political tool, and many now regret applying for the positions. ‘What’s really ironic is working for a call center and trying to help people get health care, but we can’t afford it ourselves,’ said the worker, who asked for anonymity out of fear of losing the job.” (“Half Of Affordable Care Act Call Center Jobs Will Be Part-Time,” Contra Costa Times, 7/26/13)

 

·         “‘It reminded me of that George Clooney movie where he goes around the country firing people (‘Up in the Air’),’ the employee said. ‘The woman said, ‘I know you were led to believe you would be full time, but things have changed. … You are actually ‘part-time intermittent.’’ The worker said no clear reasons for the change were given. Those who became part-time were told they would have to pay full freight on their health plans, ranging from $600 to $1,200 a month for a single worker and between $1,400 to $2,900 a month for an employee with a family.” (“Half Of Affordable Care Act Call Center Jobs Will Be Part-Time,” Contra Costa Times, 7/26/13)

 

Unions ‘Want No Part Of The Law’

 

“IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law. National Treasury Employees Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obama’s health care law.” (”IRS Employee Union: We Don’t Want Obamacare,” Washington Examiner, 7/25/13)

 

Big Labor: “…the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.” (International Brotherhood Of Teamsters, UFCW, & Unite-Here, Letter To Sen. Reid & Rep. Pelosi, 7/12/13)

 

·         “…the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly.” (International Brotherhood Of Teamsters, UFCW, & Unite-Here, Letter To Sen. Reid & Rep. Pelosi, 7/12/13)

 

D. Taylor, Unite Here President: Obamacare ‘incentivizes employers to drop insurance, and it hurts not-for-profit health care. We think that that is perverse.’ “Here we have people who have really good insurance: low cost, high quality insurance. And we have an act by Congress, signed by the White House that as it is today incentivizes employers to drop insurance, and it hurts not-for-profit health care. We think that that is perverse.” (“UNITE Here Boss D. Taylor Lambastes Obamacare,” Las Vegas Sun, 7/1/13)

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
