Motor carriers are beginning to join the ranks of restaurants and other various industries which have begun to cutback on the hours of their full-time employees due to the impending effects of Obamacare.
Under Mr. Obama's Affordable Care Act, employers with 50 or more full-time employees will be required to provide health care coverage or pay a fine.
Like industries before them, trucking companies are showing the signs of countering the socialistic reform by reducing the number of hours an employee may work.
One source has told the Tampa Bay Trucking Examiner that they are experiencing demotion as dock workers to 30 hours per week in an attempt to accommodate for the new Obamacare laws.
Since their is no mandate within the Act that requires companies to provide coverage for part-time workers, many businesses see the fine as a cheaper avenue than attempting to abide by the job-killing reform.
The Congressional Budget Office has calculated that seven million workers will lose employer coverage between 2013-2022, but the government will still collect $13 billion more revenues from those employer fines.
