    As part of his state’s new budget, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and his administration are trying to force potentially tens of thousands of public sector employees in the state to work fewer hours so that the government can avoid providing them health care.

    Under Obamacare, employers are required to offer health insurance options for any employee working 30 hours or more per week. So McDonnell and his team have slipped language into the state’s budget bill requiring that any hourly waged workers employed by the state put in no more than 29 hours a week.

    The rule applies to a range of state employees, including adjunct college professors:

    Will they be more flexible in allowing their employees to seek second jobs?


    Most state government employees have to get approval from civil service to work second jobs-it has to be cleared to make sure there is no conflict of interest.

    I wonder if the reduction in hours effects pensions too?
    I dream of the day a chicken can cross the road without it's motives being questioned.
