This is a matter of stepping up, or showing your true freeloading colors.
Businesses that short change employees so they don’t have to pay their fair share of health care are morally vacuous freeloaders, period.
Yes, business does and should have some moral backbone and some social responsibility. They after all, rely on people to make their product or service, and exist within a civilized society. Correct anyone who says the only objective of business is making money. Don’t let em off the hook, it’s more than that. This goes for public workers as well, which we really haven’t talked about much. Legislators in conservative states won't increase or update taxes as times change. In some states, like Wisconsin, they're even giving tax cuts instead of paying toward the future; education and health care for all:
NewsMax: Schools in Indiana are reducing the hours of workers, including teachers' assistants, bus drivers, and cafeteria workers in order to avoid the federal healthcare employer mandate under Obamacare.Republicans will like this conflict and shortfall, and not see it as something to fund. That's the difference between the parties.
Dennis Costerison, executive director of the Indiana Association of School Business Officials, told The Courier-Journal: "What I'm seeing across the state is school districts, unfortunately, having to reduce the hours that they're having some of their folks work, primarily so they don't have to worry about the penalties, or they don't have to provide them health insurance, which would be very, very costly," he said.
