DOR cancels medical, dental insurance for MCCS part-timers

From a post on ...

In January, some employees of the diocesan school system received a letter informing them that as of June, ‘09, they would no longer be eligible for health and dental benefits under the auspices of the diocese. The new policy affects all employees who work less than 35 hours a week. This diocesan action primarily impacted employees at the lower end of the economic spectrum who are least able to cope with an increase in medical costs. The employees were told that this action would save the diocese about $300,000 a year.

Less than 35 hours a week??

Well there goes any credibility on caring about health care.

I guess they're expecting the federal government to take over.
