Obamacare = Part-Time Work?

You’re Half-Fired! Here’s some evidence to support the suggestion that Obamacare = Part-Time work (as employers cut back hours to avoid the Affordable Care Act’s pay-or-play mandate for full time–30 hour–employees). … P.S.: At least the recent BLS data didn’t show a massive increase in involuntary part-time employment.  ….Oh, wait. [via Newsalert] …

Update: Post has been corrected to reflect Rex Nutting’s point that “the total number of part-timers” actually declined, slightly, on a seasonally-adjusted basis, even as the number of involuntary part-timers showed “a big spike.”
