FWCS Cutting Hours for Hundreds of Employees

FORT WAYNE, Ind (WOWO): Leaders with Fort Wayne Community Schools say they’re cutting back the hours for hundreds of employees largely because of the Affordable Health Care Act.

The districts plan on cutting five hours per week for 600 employees, starting June 3. The majority of workers who will be facing these cutbacks will go from 30-hours a week to about 25-hours per week.

Fort Wayne Community Schools Superintendent, Wendy Robinson, talked with our partners in news at 21 Alive; saying officials looked at the numbers and figured it would cost the school system $10 million dollars a year if employee hours were not cut.
