The Affordable Care Act Forces Employers to Hire Part-Time Employees

When you hear that employers are cutting hours so as to push people onto the exchanges, consider that while the ACA may have given employers an incentive to do so, it is ultimately the employer who has chosen to cut employee benefits and hours, not the government.  They could have done the same thing in the absence of the ACA, but now they have a convenient scapegoat.  It’s a profit grab at the expense of loyal employees, plain and simple.  Direct your anger appropriately.

Support Organized Labor

This three-decade war against common sense has preached that tax cuts for the rich help the poor, that labor unions keep workers from prospering, that regulations protecting consumers attack freedom.
.John Cavanagh & Chuck Collins, The Rich and the Rest of Us

Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are [a] few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."President Dwight D. Eisenhower
