This is what “Hope and Change” looks like. Savannah, GA CBS affiliate WTOC reported Friday that Chatham County, GA is cutting back on hours and ObamaCare is to blame. Several seasonal workers at the Aquatic Center and others in the Parks and Recreation Department will have their hours reduced to 30 per week. Some may have their hours cut down to 25 per week. Many of these seasonal workers are youngsters who are out of school for the summer months, trying to make an extra buck.
Chatham County Commissioners said that because of Obamacare’s coverage mandates, “the County would have to provide insurance if the seasonal employees work more than 30 hours.” Chatham County Chairman Al Scott says, “We are just trying to keep these employees at the same status,” he told News 3, “which is why we are following a staff recommendation to cut hours back.”
I am a Savannah native, so this story hits home for me. It’s just the latest in a long list of Obamacare horror stories that absolutely negates the load of crap Nancy Pelosi peddled when she claimed that Obamacare is a “jobs bill” that will “create 4 million jobs.”
And, unfortunately, stories like this one will continue as we push ever-closer to Obamacare’s middle-sized business and big business employer mandate deadline.
A Real Clear Politics average of polls shows 52.7% of Americans oppose Obamacare.
