Another Anecdote

The White House dismissed reports of the effect of Obamacare in substituting part-time employment for full-time as “anecdotal.” Which they will remain, because it is exceedingly unlikely that BLS would be allowed to enquire into the matter. No sense in asking questions when you already know you won’t like the answers.

However, there’s nothing wrong with piling on the “anecdotes” so here’s another one.

Company-wide, Forever 21 recently audited its staffing levels, staffing needs and payroll in conduction with reviewing its overall spending budget. As a result, we are reducing a number of full-time non-management positions…. As a Part-Time employee your regular schedule will not exceed 29.5 hours per week.

I’m sure the Forever 21 employees who are losing their benefits will be grateful to President Obama.
