Some small business owners met with Kelly Ayotte here in NH this past week to whine about ACA.
From her email:
Owners of some small New Hampshire businesses said at a forum Thursday that paperwork and expense are threatening the economic platforms on which their companies are built - to the point that the Affordable Care Act could trump nature.Now we know this is absolute BS and these business owners just don't want to do the right thing by their employees.
Greg Goddard, general manager of Gunstock Ski Resort, said requirements that health insurance be offered to employees who are on a company payroll for 120 consecutive days or longer could mean opening the slopes later and shutting them down earlier.
"We may not be able to open beyond 120 days; it may be Christmas to the middle of March ... the summer season may be the fourth of July until Labor Day," Goddard said at a roundtable discussion with Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H. "If I didn't have this mandate to worry about, this would not be on the table."
So if you are a skier, or a resident of New England pass the word around about places like GunStock that care so little about their employees that they would rather close up then do the right thing.
You might also drop a word or two on their Facebook page as to what you think about this move. Gunstock
