According to a brand new survey, next year when the Obamacare employment mandate kicks in full-time employment and personal are going to fall drastically. The survey which was taken at the end of September/ early October projects that the employer mandate goes into effect in full-time jobs will be cut and coverage will be dropped.
Polling firm Public Opinion Strategies working with the IFA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, polled the owners/executives of C-level (CEO-types) executives of franchise and non-franchise businesses employing between 40 and 500 people. These businesses employ over 42 million people, which is more than one out of every four jobs in America in the country.
The results of the survey signal a bad economy is ahead:
- Thirty-one percent (31%) of franchise and 12% of non-franchise businesses have already reduced worker hours because of the health care law.
- Twenty-seven percent (27%) of franchise and 12% of non-franchise businesses have already replaced full-time workers with part-time employees because of the health care law.
- Sixty-four percent (64%) of business decision-makers in franchise-owned businesses and 53% of non-franchise-owned businesses believe the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will have a negative impact on their businesses.
- Twenty-eight percent (28%) of franchise and non-franchise businesses surveyed report that the employer mandate will mean they will drop coverage for their employees.
If you ever wondered why the employer mandate was moved till 2015, after the midterm elections this poll will explain why. Today the progressives explain that the President’s lie only hurts 5% of the country. What will they say in early 2015 when American’s learn this president’s lie not only hurts 25% of employees represented by this survey, but all Americans who get their healthcare through their companies, and the economy begins to slow because people are earning smaller wages because their hours were cut.
