Who do you think these teachers voted for? Obama didn't think they would drop the hours to below 30, now, once again the liberal result is exactly the opposite of the stated intent. CCAC's decision to cut adjunct, part-timers hours may seed union effort | Blogh Feelings on the subject, however, may change sooner rather than later. Last week, CCAC president Alex Johnson dropped the news that 400 employees 200 adjunct professors and 200 temporary part-time workers will not get the benefit of a provision in the Affordable Care Act that would extend an employer's health insurance coverage to those working at least 30 hours a week. Instead, he said, hours for those workers will be cut effective Dec. 31, ensuring that they fall under the threshold that triggers the mandate, which takes effect in 2014 but relies on next year's figures for holding the companies accountable. The costs to cover the employees through the college's insurance plan, provided by Highmark, would be about $6 million.
