NATIONAL -- Employees around the country at some businesses, like Safeway, may not think of ACA as a bonus. They're worried their companies will cut their hours to save money.

Currently, these workers qualify for employer-subsidized healthcare if they work 16-hours per week. Those working 20-hours per week, qualify for family coverage.

ACA forces companies to provide healthcare for workers at 30+ hours, but there's no fine for companies cutting healthcare for those who work less. Workers say they need their medical to stay in place or they'll raise picket signs.
