Obamacare + Economy = Part-time Nation

Comment: Who can convert a great nation’s prime workforce to part-time? Obamacare can!

“July 20–Last month, the U.S. Department of Labor’s numbers indicated part-time employment is on the rise.”

“By the government’s account, the number of part-timers in the workforce jumped 275,000 to 7.5 million. It’s the highest number reported this year.”

…”Economists note that hiring is going on; the concern is the number of hours. That leads to the worries about the increase in part-time jobs.”

“Some have voiced concerns that the federal health insurance overhaul, which requires employers with at least 50 full-time workers to provide health plans to all who work at least 30 hours, is causing some companies to hire part-timers.”

…”National surveys find a trend for workers between ages 18 and 34 moving toward part-time employment.”
