Today I was informed that the Las Vegas Casino I work for would not be opening any full time positions at the end of the season, a first apparently. The reason, un-discussed, but the timing is coincidental.
Just as the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare to the rest of us) begins and insurance carriers are forced to reassess their portfolios and limit their exposure, full time employment seems to melt away like mist in the dawn.
All of this just seems to pat for me. If I were a conspiracy nut, I would surmise that all of this is just part and parcel of a larger plan.
What makes all of that worse is that the same people that pushed so hard to get ACA passed, are the very people that now have exemptions to the law. If this is such a bang-up law, why then have the U.S. trade unions requested exemptions for their workers, and the President, his family, members of Congress, and their families, not to mention the various ‘one-per centers’ that can afford the high end health insurance who are also exempt.
It seems the only people stuck with ACA, are the people that fought not to have it in the first place.
Of course, I could just be a conspiracy nut…
