Waving Obamacare? Work more hours if spouse carries insurance?
I am a Firefighter. I work Part time. We also have full time firefighters working along side. We have having a massive manning shortage and this is causing the full time guys to work a TON of overtime. Its really starting to drain on them...and their families. This is also massively effecting the departments budget. I as a Part time person am limited to approx 1500hrs a year because of the ACA. I have full insurance though my wife. So my question is.....If the fire department would allow me...can I work more hours and decline any insurance that they would offer? I would be more than willing to do so. Many of the firefighters are at their wits end....and I wanna help.
