Lucas Supports Measure to Repeal Obamacare Work Week Provision
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) voted today to support passage of H.R. 30, the Save American Workers Act, legislation that changes Obamacare’s definition of a full time employee from 30 hours per week to 40 hours per week.
“By defining full time employment as 30 hours per week, rather than the traditional 40 hours, Obamacare has had a devastating impact on many small businesses and hourly workers in our country. The Save American Workers Act allows these businesses to hire more employees and helps ensure part-time workers the increased financial security of a steady paycheck and consistent hours.
“This legislation represents the priorities of the new Republican majority in Congress by suggesting a commonsense fix to the president’s vastly complex, unworkable and expensive health care law.” said Congressman Lucas.
