    we were told today that our policy on hiring adjunct instructors had changed to avoid going them enough hours to qualify for 1,500 per month health benefits. My favorite adjunct will have to drop two courses for us this academic year.

    However it should not have come as a surprise to anyone that business owners (all across the board) would do this to avoid cost increases. Unintended, but totally predictable, consequences.

          colleges or very small state colleges and someplace in Colorado that looked like a college for ski bums.  The only "university" that I saw was NJ's Kean University that denied that Obamacare was involved in any of the cutback decisions.  You referenced "my university" in your comment so I was just wondering what "university" it was that you were referencing. It was a simple question.

          However, in your references, no real "universities" seemed to be involved.
