Pete Sessions' Hill Report: Save American Workers Act
by Pete Sessions on April 5, 2014 at 1:19 PM
On Thursday the House approved H.R. 2575, the Save American Workers Act, which repeals ObamaCare’s misguided 30-hour rule. This rule redefines “full time” employment as 30 hours per week instead of 40. Due to the looming employer mandate, businesses are reducing workers’ hours to 29 hours per week or less to avoid ObamaCare’s high costs and taxes – leaving millions of middle and low-wage workers with less take home pay.
At a time when millions of Americans are unemployed or underemployed, I believe we should focus on getting Washington out of the way to promote job growth and economic prosperity instead of higher taxes. I was proud to support the Save American Workers Act to protect jobs and restore wages to provide financial stability for American families.
