After I testified before the Senate HELP Committee on the Forty Hours is Full Time Act last month, I left the room feeling glad that the Senate is now working again. I also left realizing that we need to do much more to educate detractors of a common sense bill that will allow employees to work more hours and make more money.
During the hearing, Democrats on the committee expressed concern that raising ObamaCare’s 30-hour threshold to 40 hours would encourage employers to reduce employees’ hours to under 40 as a means to avoid the expense of insuring them. As I explain in the Fear not a 40-hour week op-ed that ran on The Hill today, that’s just not the case. Please take a moment to read my latest op-ed and share it with others.
