Lame excuse
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I find it appalling that a multi-million-dollar corporation like The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is trying to avoid complying with the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) by cutting employees' hours at Deseret Industries to fewer than 30 hours per week so it doesn't have to provide them health insurance ("Mormon-owned DI cuts workers' hours, avoids Obamacare rule," Tribune, May 30).

LDS Church spokeswoman Ruth Todd explained the cuts as a way "to serve as many people as possible." That is a lame excuse, used to deny affordable health care to employees.
