Remember all those AFSCME/public employee robots screeching for Big Gummint?
Yah, well, they got their Big Gummint, and something else, too.
...local governments across the country have been quietly doing exactly
the same thing — cutting part-time hours specifically so they can skirt
ObamaCare's costly employer mandate, while complaining about the law in
some of the harshest terms anyone has uttered in public.
The result is that part-time government workers — many of them
low-income — face pay cuts that can top $3,000 a year, and yet will
still be left without employer-provided benefits...
...Dearborn, Mich.: "If we had to provide health care and other benefits to
all of our employees, the burden on the city would be tremendous," said
Mayor John O'Reilly, explaining why the city is cutting its more than 700 part-time and seasonal workers down to 28 hours a week...
...Long Beach, Calif.... is going to cut
hours for 200 part-time workers so it doesn't have to pay $2 million to
provide health benefits...
...Virginia: ... is requiring that about
7,000 part-time government workers put in no more than 29 hours a week.
There will be more. Lots more. And while schadenfreude feels good for a few moments, it's really an avoidance reaction to the tragedy that's unfolding for thousands of little Gummint gerbils that swallowed, whole, the lies of the Progressive Statists they so ardently supported.
