"Walt Disney World is adding enough hours to its part time workers' rosters to allow them to qualify for Obamacare, helping their workers to get healthcare. "
Wooooaaahhh, thats just, uh very positive and not very accurate.
Disney is offering full time positions to part timers who work over 30 hours and giving them full healthcare if they accept (no word on if they don't) to avoid paying a $2000 a year fine for each such employee.
These workers are in not "qualifying for obamacare" because of the change. With full time work they are qualifying for Disney healthcare benefits, and Disney is avoiding an obamacare fine.
It sounds like Disney's going-forward policy is going to be to not have anybody working 30-39 hours a week to keep everyone either below the hours that results in fines, or at full time with benefits.
So, "Disney World converts part timers to full time with benefits to avoid fines" would be more accurate.
Better than cutting hours to avoid providing benefits, of course, but they are doing this because obamacare twisted their arm.
