Obamacare Call Center Baits-and-Switches Workers Into Part-Time …

Is there a comedian making jokes at the expense of the American workers?
Workers trained to help workers with healthcare changes, which is known as Obamacare, will not have healthcare and will be forced to accept part-time employment, maybe.
Yet, the governments want the People to continue to TRUST them!
Are they joking, or crazy? ~ Ron

Concord: Half of Affordable Care Act call center jobs will be part-time

[…] Speiker said the 7,000 applications were “totally outside what we anticipated with the demand for these jobs. We were blown away.”
The new hires, many of whom left other full-time jobs for the call center positions, were told they were the “cream of the crop,” the recent hire said.

Orientation and training started in July, but stopped on the afternoon of July 18, when employees were told they would have private meetings about their positions, the employee said.
“It reminded me of that George Clooney movie where he goes around the country firing people (‘Up in the Air’),” the employee said. “The woman said, ‘I know you were led to believe you would be full time, but things have changed. … You are actually ‘part-time intermittent.'”

The worker said no clear reasons for the change were given.

Those who became part-time were told they would have to pay full freight on their health plans, ranging from $600 to $1,200 a month for a single worker and between $1,400 to $2,900 a month for an employee with a family. That is a steep bill for employees with part-time jobs paying from $15.33 to $18.63 an hour.

Another applicant said he ditched another job offer after getting a congratulatory hiring letter from call center operators in June, only to be given the runaround in the months since.

During negotiations months ago, Service Employees International Union Local 1021, which represents the customer service agents, demanded 80 percent of health insurance premiums be paid by the county, and 20 percent be paid by the employee. SEIU did not return a call for comment.

“It is very disappointing. I was under the impression these were going to be well-paying, well-compensated positions,” said County Supervisor Mary Piepho. “We were really hopeful these would be jobs meeting the unemployment needs in our county and offer them the ability to make a living and support their families.”
