SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) –
Part-time employees who work for the city of Sioux City are starting to learn what will happen to them when the Affordable Health Care Act takes effect.
By 2014, large employers, including municipalities, will have to offer a health care plan to workers who clock in for more than 29 hours.
Sioux City is feeling the pressure to come up with a plan that protects taxpayers andits employees. However, they think they’re close to a solution.
“These employees are people,” John Hamm, President of the Northwest Iowa Labor Council pleaded with city leaders.
