How to Help Workers Access Health Coverage if ACA Repeal Passes

Posted by Casey Enstrom on Sep 26, 2017 11:00:00 AM

President Trump campaigned on a lot of issues, but at the core of all his fiery rhetoric was a promise that every policy would, somehow, serve to strengthen American labor.

Some may see the elimination of the mandates as a boon to the bottom line. Others may worry about the welfare of talent covered under ACA. There’s one very important topic that’s often ignored in the debate. Although we may not readily associate health insurance with diversity, the reality is that repealing the law could severely impact the LGBTQ professionals in our workforce.

President-elect Donald Trump hosted his first press conference in 167 days on Wednesday morning. On the issue of business and talent, Mr. Trump discussed plans that may increase the power of the gig economy -- and which some workers fear could lead to reduced stability. However, David Weil, Obama’s former wage enforcer at the U.S. Department of Labor, believes the sharing economy can work equitably for everyone involved. Let’s look at some of Weil’s ideas and see how the staffing industry can aid in the success and proper guidance.
