Part-timers to lose pay amid health act's new math

May 6, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.latimes.com

The law requires large employers offering health insurance to include part-time employees working 30 hours a week or more.

Consider the city of Long Beach. It is limiting most of its 1,600 part-time employees to fewer than 27 hours a week, on average. City officials say that without cutting payroll hours, new health benefits would cost up to $2 million more next year, and that extra expense would trigger layoffs and cutbacks in city services.

You do realize that the percent of recipients who are white is not the same as the % of whites that are recipients, don't you?
If your point was that there are a lot more whites in the U.S. than blacks, then yes, your point remains valid.
So, what in your opinion is the cause of so many blacks being on welfare?

Yes. You are right. I don't think the fact that more and more White people have become impoverished since Obama became president is any cause for rejoicing. This is especially true of us White kids who will be stuck with the bill.

Sadly for Black, Dems get more out of Blacks when they are hopelessly hooked on Welfare.

The cause is the same as for anyone else, because they are poor enough to qualify......

You could be right. By drawing a voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer Thug people into the area, the continued reign of the revolutionary ruling class (now in power) is assured.

Here is a link to a recent article entitled "Honest Examination of Race" that was written by the distinguished Professor of economics at George Mason University, Professor Walter E Williams.

According to Williams:

"Let's look at some cities where large percentages of black Americans live under poor conditions.

"Experiencing a violent crime rate of 2,137 per 100,000 of the population, Detroit is the nation's most dangerous city. Rounding out Forbes magazine's 2012 list of the 10 most dangerous cities are St Louis; Oakland, Calif.; Memphis, Tenn.; Birmingham, Ala.; Atlanta; Baltimore; Stockton, Calif.; Cleveland; and Buffalo, N.Y. The most common characteristic of these predominantly black cities is that for decades, all of them have been run by Democratic and presumably liberal administrations. Some cities -- such as Detroit, Buffalo, Newark, N.J., and Philadelphia -- haven't elected a Republican mayor for more than a half-century. What's more is that in most of these cities, blacks have been mayors, chiefs of police, school superintendents and principals and have dominated city councils."

Anyone interested in the subject should read Professor Williams short article that is linked here:

Dr. Williams serves on the faculty of George Mason University as John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics and is the author of 'Race and Economics: How Much Can Be Blamed on Discrimination?' and 'Up from the Projects: An Autobiography.'

Of course those violent cities listed are ruled by democrats. Metropolitan areas tend to be progressive (culturally diverse), rural areas (cultural stagnation) tend to be conservative. Even when a conservative does get into office in a big city they are considered "RINOs" by the base...unless of course they do a good job, then they are called "true conservatives" lol.

If believing in a particular political doctrine is required to most reliably ensure a penis up in a buttocks until it bleeds, then that is the political doctrine a gay person is most likely to have. Logic or any other aspect of reality doesn't enter into it.

Guest will do and say what he feels he needs to do and say to ensure that penis stays in that butt. That is his prime directive. Reason has zero else to do with it. It doesn't even matter if Cerritos Guest is aware of this. He must follow the prime directive, or he shrivels and dies. This is why he seems so desperate. He actually is, in his sad world.

Sorry, Guest. You lose.

Again.

KOOOOOOOOL.......Today the Dem controlled Ca State Leg passed a law that boys and girls can pick which dressing rooms they want to use for school sports events depending on what sexual "assignment they "feel they are" at the time.

Chaos? SICK!
