Pennsylvania: Substitute Teachers Hit by ObamaCare Hour Cuts

‘It’s just another piece of the puzzle that makes it tougher and tougher to finish the puzzle’

Pennsylvania Substitute Teachers Hit by Obamacare Hour Cuts (Washington Free Beacon)

Though school has yet to start, the troubles are already beginning for one Pennsylvania school district that is experiencing difficulties with staffing substitute teachers due to harsh regulations imposed by Obamacare.

Obamacare mandates that substitute teachers cannot work more than 30 hours per week at the same district without being offered healthcare benefits. The Central Cambria School District is now faced with a serious dilemma- how they will deal with a teacher’s absence when a regular teacher cannot work and when a substitute teacher is close to exceeding their 30 day threshold.

Lisa Urbassik, a 7th grade Language Arts teacher at the school district is worried about how the Obamacare rule will affect students.
