HELP END THE "30-HOUR RULE"
The Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as “Obamacare,” has had unintended consequences for part time workers across the nation due to a problematic section of the original legislation. According to the "30-Hour Rule," a full-time worker is a worker who works a total of 30 hours in a 7 day week, meaning that employers are required to provide health insurance to any and all employees working over 30 hours or risk paying a fine. As a result, many employers are reducing workers’ hours to below 30 hours/week to avoid complying with the rule.
Local 342 has been actively working to find a fair solution to this problem, but we need your help!
Tell Congress to protect your hours and rights as a worker by ending the "30-Hour Rule!"
We need your help! Sign the petition and tell Congress to act NOW!
In addition to signing this petition, please call your local Congressional Representative and ask them to support changing the 30-Hour Rule. Your Representatives need to hear how you and your family have been affected.
