The real reason employers hate Obamacare: It makes them treat their workers better

In the bad old days before Obamacare got rid of exclusions for preexisting conditions, someone with a sick family member couldn't change jobs because they knew they'd never get new health insurance...which means that no matter how badly the employer screwed with the workers, those ones would never leave. (And have you noticed that the employees who are thusly tied to the company tend to get the shittiest jobs within it?)

Ever since ACA passed things have been different: To keep employees from walking into the HR office singing,

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
The ACA done passed
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

I've been working in this factory
For nigh on fifteen years
All this time I watched my woman
Drowning in a pool of tears

And I've seen a lot of good folks die
That had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right off my back
If I had the guts to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
The ACA done passed
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Well that foreman he's a regular dog
The line boss he's a fool
Got a brand new flattop hair cut
Lord he thinks he's cool

One of these days I'm gonna blow my top
And that sucker he's gonna pay
Lord I can't wait to see their faces
When I get the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
The ACA done passed
And took all the reasons
I was working for

You better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walking out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
Take this job and shove it


...they have had to quit abusing the help. Which is a situation they truly hate.
