NFIB Commends House for Affirming 40 Hour Work Week  

Urges Senate to Quickly Pass Important Health Care Change


WASHINGTON, D.C., April 3, 2014 National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) President and CEO Dan Danner made the following statement today in response to the House passing H.R.2575 - Save American Workers Act of 2014:

“Small businesses across America today applaud the House for passing legislation to amend one of the more disastrous aspects of the health care law – affirming full-time employment as the widely-accepted 40 hour work week,” said Danner. “By bringing the Affordable Care Act in line with common labor practices, the House has moved to bolster jobs, protect workers’ hours, and reduce employers’ penalty taxes and compliance burdens. The Senate should act quickly to pass this bipartisan, common sense change that will protect workers, provide some relief for small-business owners, and create greater certainty for the economy.”
