Where There’s a Will to Get Around Legislation Meant to Help People, There’s a Way

Think Progress reports: “Under Obamacare, employers are required to offer health insurance options for any employee working 30 hours or more per week. So [Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell] and his team have slipped language into the state’s budget bill requiring that any hourly waged workers employed by the state put in no more than 29 hours a week.”

Hourly workers employed by the state include adjuncts. Ohio’s Youngstown State University implemented sub 29-hour policies in November. Everyone is so sneaky I love it. (I don’t love it.)

Bob McDonnell is the worst. He is seriously just the worst. I can’t even contribute meaningfully to this discussion.

@emmabee When I went to the link, I immediately had the urge to impale his photo.
