Arlington, VA: The National Grocers Association (NGA) today applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for the passage of H.R. 2575, the Save American Workers Act by a bipartisan vote of 248 to 179. H.R. 2575, introduced by Congressman Todd Young (R-IN) and also championed by Congressman Dan Lipinski (D-IL), would change the new definition of a full-time employee under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) from 30 hours per week per month to 40 hours per week per month.
"Simply stated, the new definition of a full-time employee does not reflect the needs of our members' workforces, and will impact the makeup of the entire American workforce by drastically altering what opportunities are available to part-time workers who choose to work part-time jobs," said Peter J. Larkin, President and CEO of NGA. "We are pleased to see H.R. 2575 pass on a bipartisan basis as it realigns the law to better reflect current employment practices. And, more importantly, the definitional change will allow our members to return their focus to being an employer of choice in the communities they serve. We are grateful for Congressman Young's leadership on bringing this bill forward and look for swift consideration in the Senate."
During debate on the House floor, Congressman Todd Young entered NGA's letter of support into the record. To view NGA's letter, click here.
