You know, even I didn't think this would happen. The States are starting to cut hours to avoid Obamacare. Gotta love the power of incentive creation!

Thousands of part-time state workers, including many in Hampton Roads, are being told they'll be allowed to work no more than 29 hours a week going forward.

The reason: The federal Affordable Care Act requires that employees working 30 hours a week or more receive health care benefits - which would cost Virginia tens of millions of dollars a year.

The new policy will mean a pay cut for many part-timers, including adjunct college professors.

Youngstown State University will limit the hours of non-union part-time employees to ensure that the university is not required to provide them with health insurance coverage under Obamacare.

YSU, a public institution in eastern Ohio, announced to employees earlier this month that it is restricting part-time employees, including adjunct professors and lecturers, to 29 hours a week or less. Under the Affordable Care Act, the university will have to provide health insurance to full-time employees, classified as anyone working 30 hours or more per week.

According to an email sent to English department employees, which was obtained by The Huffington Post, anyone who violates the new hourly limit will be fired:


Wow. Go over the limit and get fired in Ohio. Chalk up another win for O-care.
