For a law that was supposed to save America by making health care more affordable, the list of companies and unions who are being given the green light to ‘opt out’ seems to be growing by the day.
Since the last wave of ObamaCare waivers was released a few weeks ago, the number of unions and companies that have received ObamaCare waivers has doubled to 222. The number of known unions that inhabit this list is near 50.
So far, here is the list of union inductees to the Do As We Say, Not As We Do Club:
If ObamaCare keeps going at the rate it’s going (and it hasn’t even gone into effect yet), perhaps the GOP won’t need to repeal it–We can all just get waivers instead.

I share the editors diapointment over the waivers, which the public knows little about. However, I have a more modest concern involving UFCW local 1445. Why do you allow buisness agents the right of not taking a labor problem to arbitration if necessary??? I know of a case where a union member with 18 years as a member and with 1 company, being fired for a minor infraction. His BA refused to take his case to arbitration – where im sure an arbitrator would have weighed his term of employment vs the severity of the infraction.
