BRIDGMAN The Bridgman school district is outsourcing dozens of employees in order to dodge the effects of the affordable care act.

The Herald Palladium reports that 33 employees who currently work 30 hours a week will be transferred to a private contractor. That means the school district won't have to pay them benefits, which would add up to $352,000 a year.

Custodians, bus drivers, food service workers and secretaries are among the staff members who will be moved.

The district says the move enables all of their current employees to keep working in Bridgman schools.
