People from a state university in Michigan have concluded that Obama.Care.gov is "responsible" for many job losses and reductions of work hours and even reduced and delayed hiring.

All to avoid the compliance complications and high health insurance costs for employees.

The whole problem is being shifted to the workers.

Less hours = Less income. Cancelled insurance = Big cost to workers.

Bigger burdens on employers = Less wages to workers.

Mr. Cloward-Piven hard at work I see.

Study: Obamacare Killed 1,000 Jobs in Western Michigan, Slashed Workers' Hours


There are 1,000 fewer jobs in western Michigan as a result of Obamacare, according to a report from Grand Valley State University. The report also affirms that companies are cutting hours for workers to avoid increases in healthcare expenditures.

Professor Leslie Muller, one of the Professors who conducted the study contends that it is difficult to predict if the state will continue to see job loss. She opines that because we are only a few months into the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), outcomes are still uncertain. However, she states, up until now, “We’re talking about a thousand jobs in west Michigan that would have been here absent the ACA.”

And the employer gets to pocket what they used to pay out forcing the employee to purchase insurance at the companies inflated prices.

What burden on the employer? They cut the employees insurance and hours. They get to make more money seeing how they are paying less and they dumped all the burden on the employee. I'm sure the employer is crying I'm getting screwed all the way to the bank.

So what ?

Not enough already forcing employers to pay half of the employees social security contributions, and all of the unemployment insurance.

And employers ALREADY are matching employees FICA contributions.

And then raise the wage which means increasing all of the above.

ALL so some political pundit say employers need to pay for employees insurance YET AGAIN!

What utter bullsnip.

Miss that ?

Employers are paying for employees:

social security
unemployment benefits.
Medicare
