• Obamacare Forces Carolina Teachers’ Hours Cut

    Several schools in Eastern Carolina are cutting the number of hours substitute teachers can work due to Obamacare mandates.

    Substitute teachers were recently informed that they would only be allowed to work 12 days a month, or no more than 90 hours a month.

    Pitt County Schools representative Brock Letchworth says, “We’ve got a good number of subs that have come to rely on substituting as their primary source of income and unfortunately, when you cut hours, you know that you’re affecting their livelihood and it’s not something that we want to do, it’s something we’re forced to do because of these mandates put on us.”
