Protect Part-Time Workers: Cosponsor the Bipartisan Save American Workers Act.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), employers with more than 50 full-time equivalent workers must offer health insurance to their employees or face a penalty. Notably, the law defined full-time status at 30 hours of work per week, significantly below the
traditional definition of 40 hours that employers and workers have been accustomed to.  As a result, hourly or part-time employees working between 30 and 40 hours per week have seen their

hours reduced as companies have been forced to choose between unaffordable new costs or ACA’s substantial fines.  We have seen this affect not only workers in the private sector, but

city, state, and school employees as well, as governments continue to struggle to adapt their budgets to new health insurance coverage requirements.
