I don’t know how true this is but with the new Obama care plan I have heard that I will no longer be allowed to work more than 29 hours a week unless I maintain health insurance through my job. Now, during summer and winter break from college I can maintain a minimal amount of hours that are required to be eligible for health insurance, but during school months I can not. I’m a single mom, and pissed off. I can barely afford my bills as it is, I need to work extra hours during breaks from school to be able to maintain my bills while I’m in school, because obviously I can not work as many hours. As if I wasn’t stressed out enough already, I’m beyond stressing out at this point. It’s not fair or right to implement a law saying I must obtain health insurance from my work place in order to work more hours, especially when like I said, I am unable to maintain the amount of hours necessary to be eligible for health insurance. This is complete garbage if it is true, how an I suppoSed to support myself, my daughter, and go to school? Thanks Mr. Obama, you’re doing a FANTASTIC job. Not!

Obama care set an arbitrary limit of 30 hours per week to define a full-time employee. Many employers will be reducing their employees hours below 30 to avoid being considered full-time. This will not necessarily save the employer from the penalty. What I am worried about is employers laying off employees trying to make up for the penalties they will be charged. I share your frustration and encourage you to contact your elected representatives and tell them to change the law.
