Obamacare and the Workweek
Over at Investor's Business Daily, Jed Graham has some interesting data on the ratio of people working 31-34 hours per week to those working 25-29 hours:
Under Obamacare, starting in 2015, many employers will be required to provide health coverage to employees who work 30 hours or more. Anecdotal reports of employers cutting hours in anticipation are plentiful, and last year the White House itself used this metric to argue that the law wasn't hurting the workweek.
