The Affordable Care Act's 30-hour definition of full-time employees threatens small businesses by forcing owners to restrict worker hours, which damages employee morale, College Hunks Hauling Junk and College Hunks Moving multiunit franchisee Stephen Bienko told the House Small Business Subcommittee on Health and Technology. Redefining full-time employees as working 40 hours per week would put the ACA "in line with many other federal wage and hour regulations, provide small-business owners such as myself with health benefit consistency, and allow for increased hours and more take-home pay for my hard-working and deserving team members," Bienko testified.
