Affordable Health Care and the library

By Ray Kappel
“The library seems to be the poor child of the city. I don’t like how they just cut hours and think that the library is not important. They treat Susie (Kerner) like she is on the low end of the pay scale and I don’t  like how they play with that,” Sandy Amos, Tecumseh Library Board president said. She was responding to recent action by the Tecumseh City Council to cut hours at the library. The city claims the Affordable Health Care Act started it when it defined
fulltime worker as someone who works 30 or more hours. Fulltime workers have to be offered health insurance.
