From WHO-TV: Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines announced they had to layoff 29 employees. They have also had to reduce manager pay, pay for directorships, reducing hours for certain jobs, and not filling empty positions. This is due to the hospital having to cut $38 million. Mercy said the reason for the cuts was due to low payments from Medicaid along with changes that are associated with the “Affordable Care Act.”
The “Affordable Care Act” sure isn’t “affordable” for those who are losing their jobs, having their pay frozen or seeing their hours reduced.
