It would appear that SeaWorld is the latest in a long line of employers that are slashing worker’s hours to avoid ObamaCare penalties. Breitbart has more…
SeaWorld has announced plans to slash thousands of part-time workers’ hours to no more than 28 hours a week. Reducing part-time workers’ current 32 hours a week down to 28 weekly hours will avoid Obamacare’s 30-hour full-time trigger that forces employers to provide comprehensive health insurance benefits or face up to $3,000 per employee in fines.
SeaWorld’s public relations department offered scant details on its plans but said the move “is intended to bring consistency to the part-time designation across the SeaWorld Parks system.” SeaWorld says part-time workers’ hours will be cut beginning in November but would not answer whether Obamacare prompted the decision.
“There is no other reason to change your cap from 32 hours to 28 other than” Obamacare, former Walt Disney World executive and University of Central Florida hospitality management professor Duncan Dickson told the Orlando Sentinel.
So, let’s repeat…
If you voted for Obama, you voted for this. You were warned.
Elections have consequences.
