“Part-time jobs account for 97% of 2013 job growth”
that’s not This Month…. that’s THIS YEAR. So, for all of us who were hoping to be able to pay our bills, and maybe get ahead in life…. Nope, Not Yet.
“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,” said Keith Hall, a senior researcher at George Mason University’s Mercatus Center. “That is really remarkable.”
Hall is no ordinary academic. He ran the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the agency that puts out the monthly jobs report, from 2008 to 2012.
… Hall says there has to be something driving that kind of trend, and thinks he knows what it is: “There is something going on if such a large share of the hiring is part time,” Hall said. …
Oh, gee, well, now…. what could possibly be causing such a dramatic change in employers’ policies across the country? What could make them disregard the financial security and well-being of their employees? What could it be….?!?
Hall speculated that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, shorthanded as Obamacare, might be resulting in employers shifting workers to part-time status to avoid coming health care obligations.
Aw, WHO could have said this was gonna happen…?!? Who knew that Socialist policies weaken the economy?!? Who could have predicted THIS….?!?!
