Follett Higher Education Group has decided to layoff 570 full-time employees. Likely they will be replaced with employees that work under the minimum for health insurance. It will be interesting to see how the insurance will change the composition of the workforce across many industries. As a plus, it may mean since there will be insurance for pre-existing conditions, the 50-65 year old group will now be more appealing to employers. The publishing industry has been impacted with many sweeping changes in this past decade.
