Coming June 9, 2016, Here & Now listeners and visitors will experience our stories and journalism online in a whole new way.
Here & Now has been talking with private businesses and also state governments and school districts that have cut hours of employees in response to the Affordable Care Act.
Starting in 2015, larger employers will be required to provide health insurance to employees working 30 hours or more. Those workers will be considered full time.
Kelly Gilreath, owner of Kelly’s Professional Cleaning Service in Greenville, S.C., says she has to cut her workers’ hours and wants the law repealed.
“To make it a law that one person has to pay for another person’s insurance, in my opinion, is not a good thing,” Gilreath told Here & Now.
