Take Action! House to vote on 30-Hours Bill Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, January 8, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on H.R. 30, the Save American Workers Act.

Please contact your Representative urging them to support bipartisan legislation to restore the definition of a full-time employee from 30 hours a week to 40 hours a week under the health reform law.

This bipartisan bill was introduced yesterday by Reps. Todd Young (R-IN) and Dan Lipinski (D-IL), and would change the definition of full-time employee under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care act (PPACA) from 30-hours back to the traditional 40-hours. This bill provides much needed relief to employees who are finding their take home pay is lower because their hours are being reduced below the 30-hour threshold in order for employers to manage their labor and benefit costs. Employers are also finding it difficult to comply with the new 30-hour definition of a full-time employee due to the extensive tracking of employee hours.

We anticipate the Senate to take action on their bill, S. 30, the Forty Hours is full time Act, sometime in the near future. It was introduced yesterday by Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN).

Take Action and urge Congress to pass these bills!
