Retail Workweek Hits 3-Year Low as Obamacare Accelerates the Trend Towards part-time Jobs
The fly in the ointment of January's jobs report was the apparent shift to part-time work ahead of a key ObamaCare deadline.

Although retail payrolls grew by 32,600, total hours worked in the industry dipped, Labor Department data out Friday showed.

The explanation? Rank-and-file retail workers logged the shortest workweek since early 2010: just 30.1 hours, on average, vs. 30.4 in December.
Remarkably, aggregate hours worked in the retail sector fell below their January 2012 level, even though industry payrolls are up 200,000 over that period.

A similar trend showed up in leisure and hospitality: January payrolls rose by 23,000 even as aggregate hours dipped 0.3%.

Meanwhile, the ranks of part-time workers due to business conditions or because they can't find full-time work, trending lower in the past few years, rose by 212,000 to 7.8 million.

Part-Time Employee Health Care Rare Ahead Of Obamacare: Study

Just 8 percent of part-time workers are enrolled in their company health insurance plans, according to a report released Monday that underscores the reasons for and the challenges created by President Barack Obama's health care reform law.

Low-income workers are the primary target of Obamacare's expansion of health insurance to as many as 30 million people through Medicaid, subsidized private plans and new job-based health coverage. But the law's requirements for employers are leading some to consider cutting part-time workers' hours, raising questions about whether these workers will be better or worse off.

The report, conducted by the payroll and benefits manager Automatic Data Processing's ADP Research Institute, partly illustrates why 47 million Americans have no health insurance.

The ADP Research Institute analyzed data from about 300 large employers covering 2 million workers and dependents. Among the employers studied, 23 percent of their workers are part-time but only 8 percent get company-sponsored health benefits. Just 15 percent of part-time workers are even offered health insurance.

14 Reasons to Rise Up - for Jobs and Against More Spending Cuts

We Americans must be a remarkably patient people. It's been four years since Wall Street ruined the economy, we're nearly nine million jobs behind where we need to be, and for years our politicians have debated how much less -- not how much more -- they'll do about it.

Now we're about to be hit with another round of devastating spending cuts, thanks to the so-called "sequester." Here are 14 reasons to rise up and demand action on our real problems once and for all.

1. We need nine million jobs.

2. We're not creating nearly enough jobs to get us out of the hole.

3. Middle-class jobs are disappearing.

4. Youth unemployment is still at devastating levels - while older Americans can't retire.

5. Meanwhile, nearly half of all American households are teetering on the edge of crisis.

6. Consumer confidence is falling.

7. The government's planning for eight more years of misery.

It continues to become quite clear that Obamacare is hurting America.

Part-time work is becoming the new normal. That or losing your job:

Re: Retail Workweek Hits 3-Year Low as Obamacare Accelerates the Trend Towards part-time Jobs
This crisis has been in the making for years now. It is NOT obamacare to blame it all on.

Fact is many people, including myself have been without health insurance for 11 years since my divorce. All my divorced friends are in same situation. One of my friends was paying $850 a month for her health insurance (just for herself) and she had to drop it. It is difficult to pay monthly living expenses FOR THE NOW and also pay FEAR PAYMENTS FOR THE FUTURE called health insurance.

I do find it ironic that actual working people cannot afford any health insurance.

To compound the matter so many cannot find full time work with benefits. So we are left to patchwork together 2 or 3 part time jobs with no benefits. And part time work is now even less than part time....called INTERMITTENT WORK...in other words employers might or might now schedule you.

I personally have hung on to a part time jobs since 2010 with the promise of full time work with benefits. As I wait, I have seen new hires with lower hourly wages, full time with benefits....and these new hires are RETIRED PEOPLE. Once again our government subsidizes this. Go figure????

Bottom line, Democrats and their toady Obama, are running the USA into the ground with BS socialist ideology already proven not to work in Russia and China. They gave up on it themselves for gosh sakes!

The evil Chicoms and KGB Russkies are waiting in the wings to profit from the total implosion of the American Constitutional government and the American economy.
