Union Workers And Community Activists Line Up
For $20-$48 Per Hour Obamacare Navigator Jobs

The federal government is ready to hire thousands of community activists, health care providers and union workers to serve as Obamacare “navigators.” I guess they figure that with a new system mapped out like this people are going to need some help. But still, why are community organizers and union workers getting preferential treatment for these jobs that pay between $20 and $48 per hour?

Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists hired as “navigators” to help Americans choose Obamacare options starting Oct. 1 will be paid up to $48 an hour, more than six times the federal minimum wage of $7.25, according to new regulations issued Wednesday.

    As good as they are at finding ways to pick your pocket and reward their psychopants with your money, don’t you think they could solve a few of these problems, if they wanted to?

    I’m thinking the “healthcare professionals” are Registered Nurses in the middle-tier skill level who typically earn in the $48/hr. range in competitive markets.

    Of course, civil service bennies double the value of that, at least.

    Used to be that gov’t workers were paid on the low end of the scale and the multiple, generous, untaxed benefits made up for the taxable paycheck.

    So, some Mensa-member unionistas and community hacktavists are going to help us plebs “navigate” through all the wonderful Candyland options of this monstrosity. Um, OK.

    Will even the “health care professionals” be able to make heads or tails of this byzantine system that’s already dysfunctional even in its earliest stages??

    It all starts in October so they’ll get six months of paid “training” in a resort somewhere.

    Because community activists and union thugs make the best snoopers in other people’s tax AND NOW medical records. As I pointed out previously, the low level functionaries who snooped Joe-the-Plumbers tax records (without being held accountable) will now have access to our medical records. With that kind of power, they will be able to punish Republican donors or anyone targeted for destruction.

    This so-called “amateur” has outplayed us again. Start getting your ammunition AND medication through straw buyers…

    im not sure how to apply has been released yet. i need a job too! it seems like they are targeting specific groups from what the article says. im not sure if each state and/or organization does its own hiring or how it works. but it may be more than just the fed government hiring, because the states have to have exchanges.

    Thank you for the info/insight. It seems like the gov wants everyone to work for them, and now I’m ready to join them. I’ll keep watching for how to get my foot in the door.

    And so what happens when one of these worthless navigators tries to tell me about all the glories of Obamacare and I tell him or her to kiss my ass. Do I automatically get put on their shit list or worse sent off to the gulag or reeducation camps because I refuse to listen and won’t cooperate with their bullshit?

    it will probably be like the tutoring program, “No child left behind.” Local agency will get a govt. grant, advertise for jobs, do a background check and then you’re hired. Don’t expect the $48/hr. Think more like the $15-25 range. The agency will have to absorb the overhead. My guess is that you probably will NOT get mileage if you have to go to a person’s house. Also, expect a limit of about 20 hours per week. Believe it or not, check your local craigslist, etc from time to time. Hope this helps some of you

    It involves your vote and the possibility of a gun situation. Beware of the demo coming for you. FYI, where is the ammo? These people are not to be trusted. Why would they send out such a mass to target small businesses? This is beyond crazy. They are not respecting our liberty.
