Hundreds of part-time Brevard County workers have had their hours cut as the county prepares for the implementation of Obamacare.
By 2015, Obamacare will require the county to provide health care for anyone working more than 30 hours per week, which means lots of companies are cutting back the hours of part-time employees.
Brevard County has over 300 part-time workers, many of whom are in the library and parks systems.
While officials don’t necessarily want to reduce hours for those employees, they’ll be forced to unless the county wants to pay for full-time health benefits.
Health benefits for each of Brevard’s part-time employees would cost about $10,000 per employee.
Oh, that would be a $3 million hit to the Brevard County budget!
I spend a lot of time in Brevard County many (many) years ago. Lots of fond memories.
