Re: College Slashes Instructors' Hours to Avoid Obamacare
I'm a tiny bit confused.

I thought that employers were required to provide healthcare coverage for their full time workers already. And that's why so many were already hiring only part timers - to avoid having to give them benefits.

If they're already required to pay for healthcare, why does it matter if it's Obamacare? Or am I missing some loophole they used to have?

Re: College Slashes Instructors' Hours to Avoid Obamacare
Once their hours are cut, they'll be making just a little over $1800 per Month. That's not enough to live on, let alone pay for insurance.
I wonder if they can really get 'assistance' on 1800 per month.

As a University professor myself I take issue with the assumption that all college and university instructors are mindless pawns of the liberal agenda. Most of us are simply interested in our own little corner of our field of expertise, and very rarely get involved in political issues. Yes their are some who abuse their platform, but for the most part, instructors are there because they love their discipline and hope to instill in their students a critical and discerning spirit of inquiry.

The requirement for providing healthcare for FT employees is from Obamacare. But there is no rule about part time employees, so they get nothing.

Millions of people will be moved to part time work in the next month. bricks

Funny how ever other industrialized country in the world has universal health care and they all spend about half as much as we do per person, here in the U.S. But no - in this country the most important thing is corporate profits and bringing the most money into the health care system which tens of millions of people can't afford. Imagine that! I guess I am just another dumb libtard for pointing out the truth!

Funny how it's Liberal colleges that are back stabbing their workers.

We also spend more on higher education then any other country. The increase in cost of higher education has gone up faster then the cost of health care. They are swimming in money, but can't buy health insurance for their employees. Shame!

Then there's the assumption that all professors are liberals. Certain departments are overwhelmingly liberal (sociology, psychology, arts, music, etc). Other departments (at least in my university) are more conservative: History, geography, business, etc.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27235266


Other countries also don't allow for frivolous lawsuits like America does. In other countries, if you try to sue the doctor that operated on you for negligence, and you lose, you must pay for the legal fees of the doctor you are accusing of negligence. In America, the patient that brought about the charges does not have to cover the legal fees for the doctor which he accused of being negligent. Of course, that's only one of many reasons why healthcare is so expensive in America.

Other countries also don't poison their population with GMO crops, food additives and fluoride. Most of the treatment required by Americans is for things that were all easily preventable. A lot less medical service would be needed if most Americans didn't insist on eating garbage, getting fat and having an annual heart attack.

Back on topic, I noticed that many job listings as of late are all for 28 hour work weeks. Nothing like a 30% pay cut to pay for that "free" Obamacare. Not that people couldn't take a second part time job to compensate for those 12+ work hours lost.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27927585


" ... The solution, says United Steelworkers representative Jeff Cech, is that adjunct professors should unionize in an attempt to thwart schools seeking similar cost-savings efforts from avoiding Obamacare.

"They may be complying with the letter of the law, but the letter of law and the spirit of the law are two different things," said Mr. Cech. "If they are doing it at CCAC, it can't be long before they do it other places." ..."


Wonder if we'll see a wave of unionization at colleges now. Adjunts are the sort of people who are too stupid to know what's good for them, so they probably won't join.

Engineers are stupid in the same way, and see now a lot of engineers are replaced by H1B's. Disclaimer: I am an engineer, so I'm entitled to say this.

I am fairly supportive of unions, just not PUBLIC EMPLOYEE unions. CCAC is a private employer. I bet their janitorial staff and food workers are unionized.

Obamacare protects unions. So ... unionize.
