Heritage consultant Mark Wilson published a new study [1] Friday, detailing how the “play-or-pay” employer mandates in H.R. 3200 will put 5.2 million low-wage workers at risk of unemployment or reduced working hours. Fox News covered the story:

Also from the report [1]:

  • The mandates will cost businesses at least $49 billion per year.
  • Another 10.2 million workers would be at risk of slower wage growth and cuts in other benefits.
  • The mandate will cause 9 million mostly low-wage and part-time workers to lose their employment-based health insurance.
