McMorris Rodgers: Protecting Paychecks for Eastern Washington

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 2575, the bipartisan Save American Workers Act, which would restore the 40-hour full-time work week.

 “Today the House acted to protect people from Eastern Washington and across the country from seeing their hours cut as a result of the President’s unworkable health care law. Because of the revised 30-hour full-time work week definition in Obamacare, 2.6 million people are at risk of reduced hours – and many of them are our most vulnerable. Every day I hear from people in Eastern Washington who are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to support their families, and fighting to make ends meet. This legislation will provide relief to everyone – from single moms who bag groceries at the local market to those who work late nights at the McDonald’s Drive-Thru – from the unjust ramifications of the President’s false promises.”
