Personal effects of Obamacare My 20 year old daughter just texted me. She goes to college locally and works part time at the large grocery store by me (union job) for about 20+ hours a week. She works in numerous positions there as does my 23 year old daughter. During the summer, the girls work more hours - my oldest had 42 hours last week but this week has to be less because of the union requirements that if she works full time, they have to pay for health insurance. So anyway, I get a text from my 20 year old that said that she's no longer allowed to work more than 30 hours a week thanks to Obamacare. She's already covered under our insurance but there's no getting around it. She now has to find a second job - when her job can give her plenty of hours and she knows the job well. It may be good for her because I told her to start working at a place that would be beneficial for her major (audiology) so that she starts getting experience. Unfortunately, this also affects my oldest who is looking for a teaching job but they are very hard to get right now and she was hoping to max out at Stop and Shop for now until she found something. It's absolutely ridiculous. 30 hours is full time?? In what universe??????? At church, in order to save costs, we only have insurance for certain people who really need it. In most cases, wives are covered under their spouse or kids are covered under their parents - but we've had to cut the number of employees we have to under 50 just because of this whole thing. We've employed a number of teens during the summer in janitorial positions or other things where they can earn money for summer events - but now we can't do that anymore because it will push us over the 50 employees which would now put us under Obamacare. SO frustrating.
