Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar Co-Sponsors Bill to Return to a 40-Hour Work Week‘
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) issued the following statement after co-sponsoring the Save American Workers Act (H.R.2575), legislation that would repeal ObamaCare’s new definition of full time employment as 30-hours and restore the traditional 40-hour definition:
“The botched rollout of ObamaCare made clear this law is broken and needs to be repealed and replaced. ObamaCare reduces full-time employment hours, raises taxes, interferes with the fundamental doctor-patient relationship, causes premiums to skyrocket and eliminates health insurance plans that millions of Americans were promised they could keep.
“Thanks to ObamaCare redefining the traditional work week as 30 hours, millions of Americans are losing income upon which they desperately depend. Single mothers, recent college graduates and low income families are forced to pick up second jobs just to make ends meet. Ironically, changing the definition of full-time employment to 30-hours is forcing people to work more, not less, because they need multiple jobs.
