Irony From Obama’s Part-Time World
Full-time employment in America is going away, thanks to Obamacare. The trend extends all the way to people tasked with signing people up for Obamacare. Oh irony of ironies.
Contra Costa County, Calif., politicians hailed the announcement that the county had won the right to run an Obamacare call center as an economic coup that would bring in more than 200 jobs to the area. Seven thousand workers showed up to apply, some of them leaving full-time jobs for the positions originally promoted as full-time. But now the kicker: Half the jobs are part-time with no benefits.
So half the workers tasked with helping Californians sign up for Obamacare are out of luck on healthcare coverage. Their option: Pay the full cost of healthcare from the State exchange at a cost of $600 to $1,200 per month for individual coverage and $1,400 to $2,900 per month for a family. That’s quite a climb for a worker making between $15.33 and $18.63 an hour.
What are the odds most of them voted for Barack Obama… twice?
