A survey of members of the American Hardware Manufacturers Association (AHMA) reveals a significant amount of confusion over requirements related to the Affordable Care Act.
AHMA members were asked: ““The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has certain provisions scheduled to go into effect in 2014 affecting businesses with over 50 employees. Is your company fully prepared to meet the new requirements?”
More than half (56%) of the respondents answered “not sure.” Twenty-five percent answered “yes,” and 19% answered “no.”
A second question dealt with immigration policy.
AHMA members were asked: “As a manufacturer, how important is it to your business that immigration policy in Washington allows for access to the best workers at all skill levels?”
Fifty-six percent responded “very important,” 19% responded “somewhat important,” and 25% responded “not important.”
