Labor Secretary Talks

U.S. Labor Secretary Perez Visits SAC

 On Monday, September 23rd, San Antonio College received some special visitors. The U.S. Secretary of Labor, Thomas E. Perez, came to San Antonio College along with Mayor Julian Castro and U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (35th Congressional District) to discuss the Affordable Care Act in an open forum.

The U.S. Department of Labor & the Office of San Antonio Mayor in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Young Invincibles (leading national youth advocacy organization), and the Alamo Area Council of Governments hosted this open forum for the purpose of providing timely information about the new health insurance options to SAC students. The open enrollment of the Affordable Care Act health insurance options begins October 1, 2013.

During his speech, Secretary Perez discussed the importance of the Affordable Care Act and what it means for people in the city, in Texas—and the throughout country. He also discussed some of the myths associated with the Affordable Care Act. He said the process is simple, and the cost is based on earned income.  Secretary Perez told the group that qualified people could get coverage for under $100 a month and it does not discriminate based on pre-existing health conditions.  

The forum was held on Monday at 10 a.m. in the 218 room of the Nursing Allied Health Complex building. While at SAC, Secretary Perez also met with a group of students with Project QUEST, an innovative job-training program in San Antonio which has earned statewide and national attention as a model for local workforce development efforts.

U.S. Secretary Thomas E. Perez speaks to the crown of about 150 students, faculty/staff and guests attending the forum.
