VIDEO: Obamacare costs students full-time work at University of Colorado-Boulder

We already knew that Obamacare was spurring some colleges to cut student hours so they wouldn’t qualify for free healthcare – even for student journalists.

Now the law has been cited by the University of Colorado-Boulder for its new 25-hour weekly cap on student work hours, Colorado Springs CBS affiliate KKTV reports.

For students bummed about losing income that could pay for tuition and textbook price spikes, there’s a silver lining, the newscast says: “The school believes it will also help students focus on getting their degrees.”
