Health care reform is causing public sector shift cuts
Live Insurance News

According to local and state officials across the country, public employees are finding their hours cut back and limited to that of part time workers when they had previously been working full time, as their employers are trying to skirt the health care reform requirement to provide them with insurance. The public sector is an area that has yet to experience a rebound following the recession, and now workers in this area are facing further cut backs as their employers respond to the health care reform by trying to eliminate as many full time workers in favor of part timers who don’t need to be offered insurance coverage.
