So I read on another thread that all RNs at a hospital were cutback to part-time to save the cost of the affordable healthcare act. 2 things come to mind.

The labor dept. may reclassify full-time to anything over 19 hrs.

The hospitals will reclassify RNs as exempt from overtime and pay them straight salary while also requiring 50-60 hrs of work per week. This would in turn get the unions involved...... I know how this ends.

A bunch of our more liberal members here have been gloating over their candidate winning... Why aren't they gloating in this thread? It's only been 3 days since they "won".

They'll just blame Bush for the lay-offs and closings.

No it's not the fault of Obama, how can he be blamed? He won't be sworn in 'till after the first of the year. If anyone should get the blame it's the guy who didn't do anything positive in the last four-years.

Because since we don't work we don't have to worry about being laid off.

Get a job? Kinda like getting the GTPI crowd to move out of their Mom's basement...... It ain't gonna happen.

Monday morning, I have to fire 6 people. If they have an O sticker on their car... guess what's going to happen? After all, they were part of the problem.

C'mon, don't say that, your Mom wants to use the basement for storage. Now get up, get another pizza delivery job and move out.

No. It isn't. Companies were holding their breath hoping there was a chance that Obamacare and some of the mountain of fedregs would be repealed.

I cannot speak for all companies, but the small business owners and our company execs were doing this as well. They planned for the worst and hoped for the best. The worst is what we voted for...enjoy America!

There fixed it for you.

Well looks like I will stay here for the next four years (well go home for vacations) or until the obama’s change causes anarchy then I will come home to watch the liberals melt down.

I know that... and YOU know that... I wonder how many others know that? I'd bet quite few.

... as were my partners and I. We are going to hold fast - for now - but have already accepted it may simply be a matter of "when" and "how severe", not if.

We are currently shopping for insurance we can afford. Health insurance that is affordable is becoming a rare find.

Your correct there are a lot more. Companies like Boston Scientific make medical devices like pacemakers but with OBcare there will be big changes.

Because what the world needs is another concrete company.

I'm sure some entrepreneur is waiting in the wings to do what you won't.
