Karuna Jaggar, who runs a breast cancer organization, expresses her concerns about the impact of large-scale fundraising walks.
Here & Now has been talking with private businesses and also state governments and school districts that have cut hours of employees in response to the Affordable Care Act.
Starting in 2015, larger employers will be required to provide health insurance to employees working 30 hours or more. Those workers will be considered full time.
Kelly Gilreath, owner of Kelly’s Professional Cleaning Service in Greenville, S.C., says she has to cut her workers’ hours and wants the law repealed.
“To make it a law that one person has to pay for another person’s insurance, in my opinion, is not a good thing,” Gilreath told Here & Now.
Throughout the week, Here & Now is looking at the impact a raise in the minimum wage would have on states, the federal government and workers.
