Public Schools, Local Governments Move to Part-Time Work Under Obamacare

Health reform is now causing job turmoil across the country in three key groups that the White House has depended on for support—local government, school workers and unions.

School districts in states like Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Utah, Nebraska, and Indiana are dropping to part-time status school workers such as teacher aides, administrators, secretaries, bus drivers, gym teachers, coaches and cafeteria workers. Cities or counties in states like California, Indiana, Kansas, Texas, Michigan and Iowa are dropping to part-time status government workers such as librarians, secretaries, administrators, parks and recreation officials and public works officials.

    Does anyone else see the obvious hilarity that will ensue during the next season of Parks and Rec? Amy Poehler's character will be negatively impacted by the very law she will be endorsing IRL. I wonder how that's gonna play out? Will the show just outright ignore the effects? Or will they make up some positive spin on the healthcare law? Should be fun either way.
