Obamacare and Hour cuts

Ok obomacare is already kicking in in Barbourville ky. Where I work employees that have been working here for years, and are relying on 35 to 40 hours a week are now going to get 25 to 26 hours a week starting monday...THANKS OBAMACARE! I know a lot of people who's lives are ruined because of this!

Not only that, but these people will have to get a second job, and purchase there own insurance, or be fined! This is crazy! Most people do not qualify for a medical card. People are going to have it so hard.

Companies are putting every one to part time so they don't have to give them insurance....you see companies have to offer insurance to full time employees, and well, they are cutting hours so they wont have to. They don't want to get fined for not offering, and they don't have to offer to part time.

I understand that obama might thing he is helping, but he clearly does not understand how this is going to effect the middle, and lower class.

I'm all for helping people get insurance, but they shouldn't have to cut hours so drastically. How about adding a 2 or 4 percent tax on hour taxed income on our checks....

The House and Senate should pass everything Obama wants them to, so American's can see who they elected.

Look for more and more businesses to close on Sunday. Instead of being open to 9pm, they'll close at 7. Brush up on your Spanish, because the only ones hired will be Mexican, simply because they'll show up on time to work and actually do the job.

You're right, including big time cut backs in every other area as well, such as Over time and benefits.

If people "think" the first four Obama years were rough, they haven't seen nothing yet. Our entire World will be Changed before Obama's second term is over.

I have no doubt that we're living in some Biblical Prophetic times of some kind. Either way, no matter what a person may believe or disbelieve, There is most definitely something going on in the World.

Times seem to me as if they've taken a HUGE JUMP the last few years. Just look how much things have changed since the 90's.

It's quite a thing, if one chooses to ponder the subject, such as I commonly do.

Know what I mean?

With all the hourly cuts, this will-dare i say it- trickle down throughout the economy to the point that overtime will no longer even be necessary.

Notice that Wal-Mart hasn't bothered to hire for the Holiday season. In Corbin today you had to bring a buggy in with you from the parkinhg lot. That's where all the empty ones were located. They weren't in that area on the side when you first walk in. Why? Cutbacks. It's already happening.

I wouldn't take up for Wally World, The Brothers and Sister that own it are in the top ten richest people in the U.S., nothing but greed! The Waltons are Billionaires not Millionaires, Health insurance wouldn't break them!

True, a little better pay for their employees wouldn't break them either. I believe in being fair to your help. Especially the help that is making myself money. It's essential to me.

If Wal-Mart has to make cutbacks for ObamaCare, then imagine what a regular small business would have to do. I bring Wal-Mart has an example that most everyone can relate too. I haven't seen a People Greeter in a while, either.

Hey, Specialist. I've got a suggestion for a book for you to read:

"Eat the Rich"
by PJ O'Roarke

Especially the chapters on Cuba and Sweden.
