Obamacare Cost Me My Job

Unemployed Looking for a Job

I thought I was doing okay, not great, by any stretch of the imagination. It was a straight commission job. But, we were making our bills. I was on the way to earning $60,000 per year. Until I enrolled in my Companies Insurance Plan. I was told I had to enroll my wife in the company plan instead of the Obama plan if if was offered BY LAW.

So I did, that’s when things started rolling down hill, and inertia took it’s course. My Company plan cost $1,000.00 per month. my taxes and my 401k took it’s chunk. I had to earn 1,200.00 a week to just cover the basics.

I month of sorry leads put me behind, In talking to may employer I was locked into the insurance for 12 months.

I was selling a high end product in a low end area, out of season, You can guess what happened i fell behind and had no choice but to tell my employer I could not continue.

Here I am looking for a new job.
