    Second ObamaCare contractor facility doing nothing — and still hiring

    Your tax dollars at work...for you!

    Last week, whistleblowers in Missouri alerted local media that an ObamaCare facilitator with a $1.2 billion contract paid its employees to do almost nothing … literally. Serco’s paper-application facility in Missouri had so little business that employees had to sit at their desks and entertain themselves most of the day, and the goal set by Serco management had employees aiming at processing just one or two applications a month. Because employees are forbidden from bringing in their own computers or smart phones, they ended up playing Pictionary and socializing most of their day.

    A second local TV station in Arkansas wondered if the local Serco office had the same problem. Not only did employees make the same allegations, the office is still hiring even more employees to do nothing:

    This was posted a while ago, the only source the local news station had was an anonymous interview with a man who would not give his name and spoke through a voice modulator.

    In other words its total bull****.

    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    That hyperlink in the beginning of that sentence doesn't go to any story or information that supports what Hot Air is saying.

    At least one other source came out, she had a name, picture, video interview and similar allegations. From my prior post on the subject:


    Workers at Wentzille Obamacare center played board games, ex-employee says : News





    A former employee at an Affordable Care Act processing center in Wentzville recalls having so little work to do that she played board games while some co-workers slept.
    Lavonne Takatz, 42, worked at the center in Wentzville from October to April.
    “We played Pictionary. We played 20 Questions. We played Trivial Pursuit,” she told the Post-Dispatch Wednesday.



    Takatz said that when she and other employees looked for applications to process, they called it fishing because they were trying to catch an application before someone at another processing center could.

    Employees refreshed their pages so frequently that Serco limited them to one refresh per 10 minutes. If workers refreshed more than that, they were called into a supervisor’s office and told to stop.



    Workers became so bored and hostile, Takatz claims, that Serco began providing books to read. Employees were told they could not speak to the media, even if they left the company.

    Of it's something bad against liberal progressive statist policy, wiseone is sure to come tell you it's a lie, wrong, not true, bs. He's an independant see, so he has NO bias at all.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
